The Bar Association of Baltimore City is the first Bar Association formed in the State of Maryland and one of the oldest in the Nation. Incorporated on January 15, 1880, its mission was "to aid in maintaining the honor and dignity of the profession, to promote legal science, and further the administration of justice." Though the practice of law has become more complex, these are still the goals to which we strive today.

Women's History Month - Lecture and Tour

Tuesday, March 22, 2016
504 Clarence Mitchell Courthouse
5:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

“Women’s Legal Status in 18th-Century Maryland: Dependent Wives or Independent Agents?"

Married women in colonial America lived under the legal doctrine of coverture, which meant that wives did not enjoy a legal status independent of their husbands. Coverture was not the entire story, however. Learn how women enjoyed more rights in practice than they did in legal theory and how both property and equity laws provided women with opportunities for economic autonomy.

Guest Speaker

Amy M. Froide
Associate Professor of History

Affiliate Faculty in Gender and Women's Studies &
Language, Literacy, and Culture Ph.D. program

History Department
University of Maryland, Baltimore County
