Attendees will benefit from Q & A with experienced attorneys and the opportunity to strategize about practical solutions for individual case studies.

This training is open to Maryland-barred attorneys and law students in exchange for a commitment to volunteer at one rent court clinic (3 hours) or hotline shift. Nonprofit legal services provider staff may participate at no cost or pro bono commitment.
