After a long Covid-filled year, both of these below organizations are pleased to welcome you to our independent, but conjoined programs:

 

 The FBA Chapter invites you to the annual Barbara J. Rom Award and Rakow Scholarship Luncheon.

The Barbara J. Rom Award for Bankruptcy Excellence was established in 2012 to honor individuals who, like Barbara, have exhibited the highest level of overall  excellence in the practice of bankruptcy law.  Please click (way) below for additional information on submitting a nomination for this award and to view the names of previous award winners.

 

The Court Historical Society invites you to their annual meeting and presentation.

The Court Historical Society Speaker this year is:  Jack Lessenberry.  Mr. Lessenberry has been a writer for many national and regional publications, including Vanity Fair, the New York Times, the Washington Post, and the Boston Globe. Currently, he is a contributing editor and columnist for the Toledo Blade, and occasionally other newspapers, and is the co-author of the book, The People’s Lawyer, The Life and Times of Frank J. Kelley, the Nation’s Longest-Serving Attorney General, published by Wayne State University Press, and the author of Reason vs. Racism, the century-long saga of a newspaper family and raceHe lives in Huntington Woods and Charlevoix, Michigan, with his partner in life, Elizabeth, their dogs Ashley and Chet, and entirely too many – and not nearly enough – books.  At our luncheon, Mr. Lessenberry will speak about the incredible career of  Judge Avern Cohn and will also entertain questions as part of his presentation.
