Social & Networking Events

As a professional society with a membership of more than 1,100 attorneys, the AABA provides many opportunities for you to network with other legal professionals in the county, including members of the bench. We host monthly social and networking events that give legal professionals the opportunity to connect with other members of the legal community in a relaxed setting. 


Annual Meeting

Each year, the AABA installs our new officers and presents special awards during the Annual Meeting at the Circuit Court in Annapolis. After the meeting, members have the opportunity to mingle and get to know the AABA leadership at the President's Reception.

Bar Weekend

This biennial event takes our members on the road for a weekend of education programs, entertainment, relaxation and fellowship. Bar Weekend takes place on odd-numbered years at resort destinations in the Mid-Atlantic region.

Barristers’ Ball 

Each spring, we host our annual Barristers’ Ball—a night of great company, delicious food, and live entertainment. The event includes a silent auction to benefit the Anne Arundel Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA).

Charity Pub Quiz Nights 

To raise money for the Anne Arundel Bar Foundation, the AABA invites teams of two to six members (and guests) to harness their collective brain power in an attempt to bring home the coveted Cup of Perpetual Knowledge. While competing, teams enjoy a traditional Irish feast. 

Crab Feast

All members enjoy free admission to this annual, all-you-can-eat-and-drink crab feast at Sandy Point State Park.

New York Broadway Trip

Members travel by luxury coach for a day of shopping and dining, followed by a performance of the latest hit musical on Broadway.

Winter Dinner Meeting

Every other year, the AABA hosts a Winter Dinner Meeting. The event usually features a notable speaker on a topic of interest. Recent speakers have included Civil War Scholar Dr. Craig Symonds and University of Maryland Men's Head Basketball Coach Mark Turgeon.
