On June 4-6, the State Bar of Michigan Young Lawyers Section ("YLS") will host its Annual Summit at the Grand Traverse Resort and Spa in Acme (near Traverse City).

Supreme Court Chief Justice Marilyn Kelly will deliver the Keynote Address during Saturday's luncheon, and the day's program will include educational sessions by invited presenters from the Michigan Court of Appeals, the 13th Circuit Court of the State of Michigan, Macomb County Prosecutor's Office, State Bar of Michigan, Cooley Law School, Miller Canfield Paddock and Stone, and Miller Johnson.

As in prior years, the purpose of the 2010 Summit is to provide networking and educational opportunities to young lawyers, in addition to building a stronger statewide network for the section's membership.

In furtherance of this tradition, the 2010 Summit presents a great opportunity to join fellow young lawyers at a wide variety of networking events and CLE workshops.

Programming will include presentations on Preliminary Exams, Opening Statements/Closing Arguments, Juvenile Referees, an Overview of Divorce, Foreclosure Modification, Ethics and Changes in the Rules, as well as a Bar Leadership Panel and discussions on Technology Tips and Business Formation.

Judge Langford Morris of the Oakland County Circuit Court will present the Regeana Myrick Outstanding Young Lawyer Award during the Saturday dinner event.

The Outstanding Young Lawyer Award is named in honor of Regeana Myrick, who was an active member of the Young Lawyers Section and also served on its executive council.

From the time of her swearing-in to the Bar to her untimely passing, Myrick exemplified the commitment to service to the public that the Outstanding Young Lawyer Award represents. Visit for more information.

Sponsors for the 2010 Summit include WestlawNext, the Real Property Law Section of the State Bar of Michigan, Brooks Kushman P.C., LexisNexis, and Miller Canfield.
