Bernstein to speak at Cooley

Justice Richard Bernstein will speak about overcoming obstacles, without excuses, in order to achieve personal goals at WMU-Cooley Law School's Auburn Hills campus on Friday, March 20 at 12:15 p.m. The lunchtime presentation is being hosted by the school's Jewish Law Students Association.

Bernstein recently made history when he was sworn in as Michigan Supreme Court's first blind justice. He began his career in the law offices of Sam Bernstein after graduating from Northwestern University School of Law. Much of Bernstein's prior legal work was focused on protecting the rights of people with disabilities. Along with his legal career, he served as an adjunct professor at the University of Michigan and served an eight-year term on the Wayne State University Board of Governors, serving as its Chair from 2009-2010.

Bernstein's presentation is free and open to the public.
