The Maryland State Constitution: A Reference Guide, written by Saul Ewing LLP attorney Dan Friedman, was released November 30. It is the first book-length treatment of Maryland's state constitution since 1915.
This must-have resource for law firms, law libraries, and academic institutions describes Maryland's rich constitutional history, and provides a section-by-section analysis of Maryland's current constitution. It includes a foreword by retired Judge Robert L. Karwacki of the Court of Appeals of Maryland.
The book is the 41st in Greenwood Publishing Co.'s 50-state series on the state constitutions. It analyzes the provisions of both the Maryland Declaration of Rights and the state Constitution, which provides the fundamental blueprint for state government.
