Ass'n of Black Judges of MI: Removing the Mystery from Judicial Appt. Process

Monday, November 14, 2016
06:00 AM
Location: St. Regis Hotel, Detroit

The Association of Black Judges of Michigan has invited our membership to attend a panel forum on Monday November 14, 2016 at the St. Regis Hotel, 3071 W. Grand Blvd, Detroit, at 6:00p.m. The panel forum will be on: Removing the Mystery from the Judicial Appointment Process for Judges and Attorneys:  How to seek and obtain the Application, the References, the Interview and the Call of congratulations from Lansing. This is one of several new projects in which the ABJM, proudly, takes the lead in providing education to the legal community.  This forum is designed for all sitting judges interested in an appointment to another bench, and all active attorney members of Wolverine Bar Association and the D. Augustus Straker Bar Association who aspire towards the bench. This forum will be a moderated discussion by noted judges from the district, circuit, court of appeals and federal courts who have sought and obtained appointments to the bench. These esteemed judges will publicly share their insight, knowledge, experiences and suggestions regarding the appointment process in Michigan. If you have ever wondered how to gather information for the 30-plus page application, how to obtain the proper judicial references, how to make the best impression at the appointment interview-and more, join us for this event. Of course, no discussion about the judicial appointment process is complete without exploring the pros and cons of applying for this *non-partisan position *in Michigans highly charged political climate. This forum will be open to all 2016-2017 dues paid members.
