Duties: Work at each of the six locations of the Maryland Courts Self-Help Center and District Court Self-Help Centers in Annapolis, Baltimore City, Frederick, Glen Burnie, Upper Marlboro, and Salisbury, Maryland. Help each Self-Help Center maintain capacity. Although based in the Maryland Courts Self-Help Center in Annapolis, the staff attorney will “float” between offices to fill in for absences created by scheduled attorney leave.

Legal services to self-represented litigants will occur via walk-in assistance, phone calls, and live chat assistance, or as requested by the Court.

Qualification and Experience

Qualifications: Admitted to the Maryland Bar with 1+ years of civil litigation experience. Excellent organizational, communications, and interpersonal skills required. Fluency in a second language strongly preferred. Flexibility in schedule, with ability and willingness to travel frequently between the six locations.

I was incredibly happy with the site. I thought it was very easy to use; had significantly more postings than any other site (or combination of sites); and provided a lot of useful information. (the number, and caliber, of job postings). Exactly what I was looking for – I have 5 years’ experience and was looking for a lateral move or an in-house position, and that’s exactly what I found!
