What is the intended audience for trainings?
PBRC’s substantive training programs primarily target attorneys licensed in Maryland. Out-of-state attorneys who are interested in completing a particular training course should contact Annie Speedie (email@example.com) for information on how to become special authorized to practice pro bono through an approved Maryland legal services provider, which requires submitting certain documentation and a check for $10.00 to the Maryland Court of Appeals. Please note, however, that out-of-state attorneys are automatically eligible to take trainings in the areas for which they can practice without the necessity of a Maryland license, such as immigration and veterans’ law. There are also opportunities for lawyers to research and draft articles for the People’s Law Library, which does not require a Maryland license. Depending on the training topic and space limitations, staff of legal services providers are welcome to attend certain trainings as well.
