The Maryland Legal Services Corporation (MLSC) was established in 1982 to raise funds and make grants to nonprofit organizations for the provision of civil legal assistance to low-income Marylanders. MLSC is principally funded by Interest on Lawyer Trust Accounts (IOLTA) and surcharges on court filing fees.


Congratulations to the MLSC award winners!
