COVID’s Impact on Maryland’s Legal Profession

How has the COVID-19 pandemic affected Maryland’s legal industry? The Maryland State Bar Association and The Daily Record surveyed the legal community this summer to find out. Our statewide survey asked attorneys how they adjusted their practices. Did they downsize? Set up safety protocols? What happened to their caseloads? Were they able to use technology to serve their clients? And what is likely to permanently change in the way they do business?

Our hour-long free webinar explores the key findings of the survey.
