University of Baltimore School of Law
The School of Law was founded in 1925 as a part of the then-private, nonprofit University of Baltimore, with the first class of 38 students receiving their diplomas in 1928. Created to serve the working population of the Baltimore area with a part-time evening program, the school added a full-time day division in 1969.
The mission of the MSBA is to effectively represent Maryland’s lawyers, to provide member services and to promote professionalism, diversity in the legal profession, access to justice, service to the public and respect for the rule of law.
George Washington University
Since our capital city’s first days, people have traveled here for many reasons. They come to explore the past and to chart new futures. They come to ask questions and to seek expert answers. They come to start discourse and to remember in silence. They come to demand change and to be that change. They come to grow. They come to learn. They come to make history and join the ranks alongside many prominent GW alumni.
Established in 1931, the Anne Arundel Bar Association is committed to upholding the honor of the profession of law and promoting the administration of justice in our region. We help members strengthen their relationships with other members of the legal profession and with the communities they serve.
