Maryland Lawyers for the Arts has been helping Maryland artists since 1985, but some people were still unclear about its mission. Is it a group of lawyers who like art? Well, yes, but that’s not all. It’s a group of lawyers (and business leaders) who like art so much that they volunteer their time, energies, and expertise to help artists. We couldn’t function without our volunteer lawyers and we wanted to make that clear. So we added the word to our name—hence, Maryland VOLUNTEER Lawyers for the Arts. Which led us to our new acronym and logo—Md|VLA. Which led to the need for a new and improved web site—where you are now, thanks very much to Steven Seebode. And, which coincided with our real world move to a new office in the amazing new community of nonprofits at Union Mill. We’re grateful to all the people who ‘ve made and continue to make it all happen.
