Bar associations gather for brunch


The State Bar of Michigan (SBM) Diversity and Inclusion Advisory Committee and Equal Access Initiative co-hosted the Annual Brunch for Bars on Sunday, April 8, at the Fort Shelby DoubleTree Hotel in Detroit. The brunch occurred the morning after the Wolverine Bar Association’s 57th Annual Barristers Ball and offered an opportunity for leaders of local and affinity bar associations to network, share information, and discuss collaboration opportunities. Among those taking part in the event were (front row, left to right) Michigan Court of Appeals Judge Cynthia Stephens, Alisa Parker of Legal Services of South Central Michigan, SBM President Don Rockwell of Nill Rockwell PC, and SBM Director of Diversity Gregory Conyers.
