Representative Assembly Accepting Nominations for Annual Awards; Deadline is March 9


Nominations are being accepted for two State Bar of Michigan Representative Assembly awards. The Michael Franck Award is given annually to an attorney who has made an outstanding contribution to the improvement of the legal profession. The Unsung Hero Award is presented to a lawyer who has exhibited the highest standards of practice and commitment for the benefit of others.

Nominees for both awards must be State Bar members in good standing. Candidate contributions may have been made during the past year or by virtue of cumulative effort or service. Nominations should include sufficient details about the nominee's accomplishments. The Assembly's Nominating and Awards Committee will review the applications and make awards recommendations to the Representative Assembly. The Representative Assembly, chaired by Stephen Gobbo, is the final policy-making body of the State Bar.

The nomination deadline is Friday, March 9, 2012. For more information about these awards, or to submit an online application, visit the awards and events page. Nominations can also be mailed to:
