The Maryland Access to Justice Commission was created by Chief Judge

Robert M. Bell in 2008 to develop, coordinate and implement policy initiatives to

expand access to the State’s civil justice system. The Commission brings together

leaders and stakeholders from the Maryland Judiciary and its justice system

partners, including members of the legal services delivery system, the Maryland

State Bar Association, the Executive and Legislative Branches, and the Governor’s

Office. The Commission seeks to create a meaningful voice for the public whose

interest its serves.
