How to Participate

how lawyers can and do help…

    Why Should I Share My Story?
    The personal stories and experiences of our members who volunteer represent the heart of the law. By sharing your story, you can provide examples that other lawyers can look to in continuing the public service traditions of the legal profession.

    What Will You Do With My Story?
    Our publications and website will feature stories about lawyers who make a difference. By sharing your story, you will help build a library and historical archive of the many contributions lawyers make every day.

    What Kind of Stories Are you Looking For?
    We want to shine a light on lawyers who provide free legal help to the poor, donate for nonprofit legal aid programs, and give back to their communities. Submit your stories, photos and articles about lawyer volunteers who help promote the legal profession's nonprofit, nonpartisan efforts regarding pro bono (service and donations) and other community service.

    Can I Send My Story in the Mail
    Of course. Please be sure to include your contact information with a copy of your story, and mail to: State Bar of Michigan, Attention: Share Your Story, 306 Townsend St., Lansing, MI 48933.
