Announcement—Court Community Connections

We are excited to announce that the Justices of the Michigan Supreme Court will be bringing their Court Community Connections program to the Reeths-Puffer Auditorium in Muskegon on October 24, 2018, at 9:00 a.m.

Started in 2007, the program is aimed principally at high school students, with the goal of helping them understand the appellate courts and Michigan’s judicial system. To prepare for the oral argument, students will meet with local attorneys, who discuss the case that the Court will hear. After the argument, students participate in a debriefing with the attorneys who argued the case, and also have an opportunity to meet the justices.

We also anticipate having a luncheon afterwards with the justices, local judges, and MCBA members.

We are inviting Muskegon County Bar Association members to this momentous event.

  • • To help us anticipate how many members are interested in attending, please express your interest by contacting Manda Mitteer at mitteerma@co.muskegon.mi.us.
  • • We will be asking for a formal RSVP at a later date closer to the event, so your interest at this time is not a commitment to attending.

We are thrilled to have this opportunity and look forward to seeing everyone there.
