In partnership with the Maryland State Bar Association and a high-level Task Force with the Attorney General, A2JC’s purpose during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond is to be an aggregator of civil justice system information, a communicator to the public and civil legal-aid community, and a thought-leader. A2JC’s partners include the deans of the state’s law schools, the Maryland attorney general, law firm partners, corporate counsel, heads of legal services organizations and funders, academics, and representatives from the Maryland Judiciary and the Maryland State Bar Association.
