Wayne State will Partner with SBM to Host “Professionalism in Action” Program


Another Michigan law school is partnering with the State Bar to introduce the "Professionalism in Action" program to its first year students.

Wayne State University Law School students will have the opportunity Friday, August 27, 2010, to interact and discuss ethical hypotheticals and professional conduct with more than 50 prominent Detroit-area attorneys and judges. The program will be held from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Detroit Athletic Club.

"Professionalism in Action," introduced in April 2009 by SBM Past President Ed Pappas, emphasizes the importance of ethics and civility using pre-selected hypothetical situations and small group discussions among law students, lawyers, and judges.

Wayne Law Dean Robert M. Ackerman will give a welcoming address. State Bar President Charles Toy and Chief U.S. District Judge Gerald E. Rosen will provide remarks before group sessions and evaluations. A reception will be held immediately after the program.

"A lawyer's expertise and skills are not complete without an ethical and professional aspect," said SBM President, Charles Toy. "They are an intrinsic part of our legal tradition, and law students have everything to gain from these discussions with seasoned professionals."
