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 people in poverty and the underrepresented across the mid-Atlantic region and how we can improve access to justice.

Join us for our 24th year, as 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.
