Office of Diversity & Inclusion

The State Bar of Michigan’s work in improving diversity is rooted in its Strategic Plan as part of our work to improve access to justice, build public trust in the rule of law, and to advocate for improvements in Michigan’s justice system. Specifically, the State Bar of Michigan promotes respect for diversity as an important element of professionalism and encourages improved diversity and inclusion in the legal profession.

The Office of Diversity & Inclusion spearheads the State Bar of Michigan’s work in this area by through its work, including convening groups to share pipeline resources, offering Face of Justice networking events for high school and law school students, and hosting discussions focused on the intersection of justice and diversity.
