Journalist's Guide to Maryland's Legal System



The Bench, the Bar, and the Media, three groups which are suspicious and, often, uninformed about each other.   The first-ever joint educational program, held on November 7, 1998, brought together reporters and editors, judges and attorneys in a  forum intended to open the lines of communication, provide greater insight into the job each group does and, hopefully, lead to better reporting of the state's legal system.  All attendees received a copy of the state's first Journalist's Guide to Maryland's Legal System.  It was distributed to newsrooms and judges across the state following the conference.  An updated version of theGuide is posted below.
