Pro Bono with the Maryland People’s Law Library

Want to use your legal writing and research skills to make a difference?  Want to do all that from the comfort of your home or office?  The Maryland People’s Law Library (www.peoples-law.org) (or “PLL”) is a free online encyclopedia of Maryland law and procedure, and is the Maryland Judiciary’s primary method of providing legal information and referral assistance to self-represented litigants.

Use your language skills to help Maryland’s immigrant community. Thousands of Marylander’s need help learning about the law in their primary language. PLL supports Spanish, French, Korean, and Chinese and needs your help to increase our content in each language. We have a state of the art translation management system that lets you work at your own pace and training takes only 30 minutes.

If you’ve been conflicted out of other pro bono activities due to government employment or other considerations, consider serving Maryland’s low- and moderate- income population with clearly written explanations of various legal topics.

Your work will support PLL’s mission of educating Marylanders about the civil legal issues that self-represented litigants most frequently face in Maryland courts.  With your permission, you’ll also be publically recognized for your work.
