Community Law Center

Community Law Center provides provides learning opportunities and direct legal representation for neighborhood-led groups, community associations, grassroots organizations, and small nonprofits in Maryland with a strong concentration in Baltimore City. Community Law Center is the legal partner for neighborhood organizations and nonprofits that lack the financial resources to pay for private legal representation. Through our programs, we have assisted in the capacity building of hundreds of community associations and nonprofits, facilitated the revitalization of blighted land and vacant structures, reduced crime and nuisance activities stemming from residential and commercial properties, and helped communities and nonprofits accomplish their goals and achieve their missions.
