A Year In The Life Of Court of Appeals Chief Judge Mary Ellen Barbera

Office of the Maryland Governor

Mary Ellen Barbera was a public school teacher in Baltimore when she began taking night law school classes at the University of Maryland. About 30 years ago, she graduated from law school, passed the Maryland bar, and began down a path that would lead her to Maryland’s highest court, the Court of Appeals. A year ago this month, she became that court’s first female Chief Judge. She joins Sheilah to talk about her first year in that role.

You can find out more about the Maryland Court of Appeals here. More about the Maryland Electronic Courts project here.

Sheilah Kast is the host of On The Record, Monday-Friday, 9:30-10:00 am.
