Location: Baltimore

Wilson Elser recently sponsored the annual Community Law in Action (CLIA) Luncheon, “Honoring our Past and Envisioning our Future,” in Baltimore, Maryland. CLIA is an organization that creates interactive educational and community based initiatives to engage young people as advocates and active citizens. The Honorable Chief Judge Robert Bell (Chief Judge of the Maryland Court of Appeals, ret) served as the keynote speaker, and Michael Milliman, a professor at the University of Maryland School of Law and co-founder of CLIA, was honored. Numerous community and business leaders attended.

Through these real-world initiatives, CLIA fosters youth and adult collaborations leading to sustainable social change, while promoting youth voice and positive youth development. CLIA is also involved in corporate and community mentoring, whichconnects high school students with professionals at area businesses, law firms, nonprofits and governments agencies.  Wilson Elser has previously been involved with youth programs conducted through the CLIA.  The firm’s sponsorship of this event and Angela Russell’s service on the CLIA board will continue to build on the firm’s engagement with the Baltimore community.
