Relief is on the way for fans starved for hockey this year. On Sunday, April 10, Michigan law students and lawyers will hit the ice in East Lansing for a very good cause: to support civil legal services for low-income people in Michigan.
The annual Skate for Justice tournament will be held at the Clarence L. Munn Ice Arena on the campus of Michigan State University beginning at noon. Skate for Justice is an annual charity ice hockey tournament among students at Michigan law schools, including the University of Michigan, Ave Maria, University of Detroit Mercy, Wayne State University, and Michigan State University College of Law.
This special fundraising event will support the Access to Justice (ATJ) Development Campaign, one of several justice initiatives at the State Bar of Michigan.
Access to Justice donations are received and managed by the Michigan State Bar Foundation, with the net proceeds from this year's Skate for Justice benefiting the ATJ Operations Fund for use throughout the state.
After the Championship Game, there will be a reception celebrating the efforts and involvement of all participants, organizers, and fans. Details will be announced at the tournament.
