Maryland Administrative Office of the Courts issued the following announcement on Oct. 5.

On Thursday, Oct. 17, the Maryland Judiciary will hold a ceremony at the state’s public law library to recognize its new name, the Maryland Thurgood Marshall State Law Library. The renaming honors Justice Marshall, the Maryland lawyer who successfully argued landmark cases before the United State Supreme Court and who went on to become that court’s first African-American justice.

Maryland Court of Appeals Chief Judge Mary Ellen Barbera will lead the ceremony, which will be held at the Courts of Appeal Building in Annapolis, the home of the library and the state’s highest courts.
