NATIONAL NOTICE: State Bar of Michigan recognized for Legal Services work

Last year, the State Bar of Michigan played an exemplary role in advancing access to justice by successfully advocating for adequate funding for Legal Services Corporation (LSC) during the congressional budget allocation for fiscal year 2012.

The State Bar of Michigan advocated for LSC funding through an ongoing grassroots legislative advocacy campaign that included urging congressional members on the Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction to push for increased LSC funding.

"The State Bar of Michigan is honored to be named a 2012 recipient of the ABA Grassroots Advocacy Award," said State Bar of Michigan President Julie Fershtman.

"We have a committed staff that works very hard to advance the bar's interests on the legislative front, and we value our relationship with the ABA when opportunities arise to work together on issues of mutual interest."
