MLSC was established by the Maryland General Assembly in 1982 to receive and distribute funds to nonprofit organizations that provide civil legal assistance to low-income persons. MLSC is governed by a nine-member Board of Directors appointed by the Governor and confirmed by the Senate. From its inception, MLSC has made grants totaling over $270 million to help provide services in nearly 3 million legal matters for Maryland’s families in areas of family, housing, consumer, employment, health care and other civil legal matters.
