Maryland Rule 16-811 e. 2  Client Protection Fund of the Bar of Maryland


2. Payment required as condition of practice; exception.- Except as otherwise provided in this section, each lawyer admitted to practice before the Court of Appeals or issued a certificate of special authorization under Rule 15 of the Rules Governing Admission to the Bar of Maryland, shall, as a condition precedent to the practice of law (as from time to time defined in Code, Business Occupations and Professions Article) in this State, pay annually to the treasurer of the Fund the sum, including all applicable late charges, the Court may fix. The trustees may provide in their regulations reasonable and uniform deadline dates for receipt of payments of assessments or applications for change to inactive/retired status. A lawyer on inactive/retired status may engage in the practice of law without payment to the Fund if (A) the lawyer is on inactive/retired status solely as a result of having been approved for that status by the trustees and not as a result of any action against the attorney pursuant to Title 16, Chapter 700 of these Rules and (B) the lawyer's practice is limited to representing clients without compensation, other than reimbursement of reasonable and necessary expenses, as part of the lawyer's participation in a legal services or pro bono publico program sponsored or supported by a local bar association, the Maryland State Bar Association, Inc., an affiliated bar foundation, or the Maryland Legal Services Corporation. (Amended Dec. 8, 1992; Sept. 11, 1995, effective Jan. 1, 1996.)
