A prominent group of judges and lawyers met Oct. 23 at the State Bar of Michigan in Lansing to set in motion the very crucial work of identifying how Michigan's justice system can meet the needs of the public in the face of major economic changes in the state. Members of the Judicial Crossroads Task Force heard a presentation from the National Center for State Courts on how other states are grappling with similar issues. The work of the Task Force is supported by four committees: court structure and resources, access to justice, technology, and business impact. The next Task Force meeting has been scheduled for March of 2010.
