The Maryland Access to Justice Commission was originally created in 2008 by order of the Chief Judge of the Court of Appeals of Maryland, and operated within the judiciary. By subsequent order, the Commission ended as an entity of the judiciary effective December 31, 2014. Some of the former Commission’s functions were absorbed into a new Access to Justice Department within the judiciary.
We have formed a new Access to Justice Commission that is an independent entity, separate from the judiciary. The new Access to Justice Commission will continue the work of the former commission, which has not been assumed by the Access to Justice Department.
