The Courts of the Province were first authorized to examine persons
seeking to practice law in 1716 (Acts 1715, chap. 48, sec. 12). The
examination of attorneys remained as a function of the several courts
of the State until 1898, when the Legislature created the State Board
of Law Examiners. The Board is composed of three members appointed
by the Judges of the Court of Appeals, Twice yearly, in the City of
Baltimore during the months of March and July, the Board examines
all persons wishing to practice law in the State. It also passes upon
the petitions of attorneys from other states and territories desiring
admittance to the Maryland Bar in accordance with rule fourteen of
the Board. The Board passes upon appeals from the findings and
recommendations of the Character Committees of the various counties
and the City of Baltimore. In addition, it accredits universities and
colleges in the State of Maryland for pre-legal training and prescribes
the necessary courses of study for law students. Students expecting to
study law in anticipation of practicing in Maryland must register their
intentions with the Board. The Court of Appeals formulates the rules
of the Board, but the Board may prescribe rules for the conduct of
examinations, providing such rules do not conflict with those made by
the Court (Code 1957, Art. 10, sees. 2-8).
