Access Initiative of the State Bar of Michigan Standing Committee on
Justice Initiatives is distributing the second of four e-newsletters
on disability issues. It is titled Low Cost Ways Courthouses Can
Be More Accessible to Persons With Disabilities and is available
on the State
Bar of Michigan website. These newsletters are free of charge
and members of the bar as well as members of the public may sign up to
receive them at the Disabilities
Project Newsletter Sign-Up.
The first newsletter was entitled Deaf and Hard
of Hearing, and the third and fourth issues are Wheelchairs in
the Courtroom and Non-Lawyer Advocates for People with Cognitive
Disabilities. Funding for this project was provided in part by the
Newman Foundation. For more information, please contact Judy Hershkowitz
