Here's what we did last year....

Five stylized people holding hands, with the words "Partners for Justice"

The Partners for Justice Conference takes place annually, and presents a unique opportunity for legal services program staff, the public and private bar, members of the judiciary, human services agencies, elected officials, and others to discuss critical issues facing the poor and underrepresented across the mid-Atlantic region and how we can improve access to justice.

Join us as we get together in-person for the first time since the start of the pandemic for our 23rd annual Partners for Justice Conference. Speakers and panelists from over 30 different organizations, government agencies, and law firms across Maryland and the United States will share their thoughts and ideas while leading discussions on key access-to-justice issues.

Walk-Ins Welcome

Featuring Keynote Speaker

Jenny Egan

Chief Attorney in the Maryland Office of the Public Defender – Baltimore Juvenile Division and co-founder of Baltimore Action Legal Team (BALT)
