All the Ways A Lawyer Helps

The John W. Cummiskey Pro Bono Award

On September 26, 2019, Kim Scott received the 2019 Cummiskey Pro Bono Award and designated the accompanying stipend to the Michigan Immigrant Rights Center.  The purpose of this award is to foster awareness of the need for involvement of the private bar in delivering legal services to the poor, by giving public recognition each year to a Michigan lawyer who has made a significant pro bono contribution to this effort. The award is established in the name of John W. Cummiskey of Grand Rapids, a leading advocate and activist in the cause of making legal services available to all, without regard to economic status.
