Constitution Hall is New Home for Michigan Legal Milestone Plaque

5/17/07

The State Bar of Michigan will rededicate a plaque Friday, June 15, commemorating the convention of 1961-62 that resulted in our state's constitution. The bronze marker's new home will be Constitution Hall, located at 525 West Allegan Street in Lansing.

The Michigan Legal Milestone plaque was first dedicated in 1989 at the Lansing Civic Arena at the corner of Walnut and Washtenaw streets where the constitution was written. That building has since been demolished.

Kimberly M. Cahill, the State Bar president, will serve as master of ceremonies at the rededication. Other speakers include Robert A. Sedler, distinguished professor of law at Wayne State University, Eugene G. Wanger, a Lansing-area attorney, and Hon. Richard D. Ball, the incoming president of the Ingham County Bar Association.

The event will begin at 3 p.m. in the Constitution Hall atrium. Light refreshments will be served. To attend, please RSVP to Joyce Nordeen at (517) 346-6373 or e-mail jnordeen@mail.michbar.org. Space is limited. For parking information please visit http://www.deq.state.mi.us/documents/deq-exec-mapch.pdf.

The SBM Public Outreach Committee chaired by Miles Postema undertakes plaque placement to commemorate important events in Michigan's rich legal history through its Legal Milestones program. To date, 31 milestones have been placed throughout the state. Visit http://www.michbar.org/programs/milestones.cfm for more information on these milestones.
