The Ask A Lawyer In The Library program is a civil, non-family law, self-help program sponsored by the Anne Arundel Bar Association and the Maryland Volunteer Lawyers Service. Every Wednesday, from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., you can talk with a volunteer attorney for up to 20 minutes. No appointment is necessary, but sign-up is required at the law library’s information desk. Sign-up begins at 10:45 a.m., and time slots are determined by a lottery. For more information, please see

On Wednesday, October 7, 2015, the Law Library hosted another successful Ask A Lawyer In The Library program. Thank you, Mike Ragland, retired, for volunteering and providing this service to the public. Four people took part in the program and were able to speak with the attorney to request assistance with issues such as wills, a roof warranty, and defamation. One person who had a pressing foreclosure question was referred to the MVLS Foreclosure Brief Legal Advice program helpline.

Do you have a question about foreclosure? The law library is hosting a monthly foreclosure clinic through the Maryland Volunteer Lawyers Service (MVLS). The next clinic will be held on October 14, from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm in the law library. The MVLS, walk-in, Foreclosure Brief Legal Advice program is held on Mondays and Wednesdays from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm. This program is held at the Office of Administrative Hearings, Administrative Law Building, 11101 Gilroy Rd., Hunt Valley, MD 21031. There are call-in hours in addition to the in-person hours. The helpline at 443-808-0076 is held on Monday and Wednesday, from 10:30 am to 12:00 pm and from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm.
