State Bar Invites Members to Join a Committee

5/7/08

Lawyers are being encouraged to contribute their time and talents to further the mission of the State Bar of Michigan by becoming active in one of the association's committees.

Twenty-four standing and two special committees meet regularly to address issues such as ethics, public outreach, law and the media, unauthorized practice of the law, pro bono service, standard criminal jury instructions, and member services, among others. State Bar committees play a primary role in achieving the Bar's mission of promoting improvements in the administration of justice and advancements in jurisprudence, improving relations between the legal profession and the public, and promoting the interests of the legal profession in Michigan.

"Working with attorneys from different practice areas and different parts of the state to advance the administration of justice and raise the standards of legal service is a rewarding experience." said SBM President-Elect Edward H. Pappas. "The State Bar committees play an important role in improving the legal climate for all Michigan residents."
