The Montgomery Bar Association Pro Bono Committee is proud to sponsor a special Pro Bono Month CJE/CLE on Wednesday, October 23rd from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM. 

This unique event will bring together MCCP judges, Magisterial District judges, and other MBA members for a simulation exercise demonstrating the complex challenges of reentry individuals, followed by inspiring and challenging small-group discussions. 

Led by Leslie Faith Jones, Policy & Advocacy Director of the MC Public Defenders’ Office, and Nancy Walsh, MBA’s Director of Engagement, Leadership and Community Outreach, this workshop will provide an opportunity to explore a crucial access to justice issue in a way that honors the true meaning of Pro Bono Month.
