The State Bar of Michigan Law and the Media Committee and the Society of Professional Journalists, Detroit, have collaborated to create "Covering the courts: What Detroit's top legal minds think." The program will consist of two panel discussions moderated by Michigan Radio Political Commentator and Wayne State University Professor Jack Lessenberry that will feature prominent Michigan attorneys and judges.
The first panel will feature U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Michigan Barbara McQuade and Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy. The discussion will take place from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Nov. 10 at Crain's Detroit, located at 1155 Gratiot Ave.
The second panel will feature the Hon. Nancy Edmunds, federal judge for the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan, and the Hon. Robert Columbo, judge of the Third Circuit Court in Wayne County. The discussion will take place from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Nov. 18 at Butzel Long, located at 150 W Jefferson Ave, Ste 100, in Detroit.
The discussions will be aimed at helping journalists better navigate the legal system. The prominent attorneys and judges will share their opinions of how reporters and news outlets can improve the quality of their reporting and build a better rapport with the members of the legal profession.
The panel discussions are free to attend, but registration is requested. To reserve your spot, RSVP to Donna Remer at email@example.com or (586) 306-2035.
