New Albanian American Bar Association Formed

3/5/12

The State Bar of Michigan has recognized the recently-formed, special purpose Albanian American Bar Association of Michigan (AABAM). The group was created to meet the growing presence and needs of Albanian American lawyers and law students in Michigan. AABAM, which was founded by seven members, has grown to contain 34 members in less than six months.

The new bar association aims to provide assistance, networking, and scholarship opportunities, as well as professional development, to people of Albanian descent in the legal profession. Detroit has one of the largest Albanian populations in the United States, and AABAM will also work to foster greater understanding of the Albanian community.

State Bar of Michigan President Julie Fershtman congratulated AABAM members for their initiative and focus. “We are pleased to recognize the Albanian Bar and will support and join them in advancing common goals such as promoting justice, goodwill, fellowship, and cooperation with other bar associations,” she said.
