SBM’s Bar Journal seeks input from Michigan attorneys

The State Bar of Michigan’s Bar Journal Committee is conducting its first survey in 10 years to gather input on its use of theme issues, current content, and ideas for possible future content.

The survey includes a maximum of 12 questions and takes 4 to 5 minutes to complete. “We want the Bar Journal to be the best it can be—to be a publication that attorneys read and look forward to receiving each month. … Please provide your input to help us make the Bar Journal more responsive to your needs,” the committee states.
