This year's Professionalism in Action program, presented by UDM Law in partnership with the State Bar of Michigan,  will be held August 19, 2013 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on the law school's campus, with a reception immediately following.  The program facilitator is UDM Law Professor Larry Dubin.  UDM Law is pleased to announce that Bruce Courtade, a shareholder at Rhoades McKee, PC in Grand Rapids and President of the State Bar of Michigan, will address the incoming class and offer remarks on behalf of the State Bar.  

Professionalism in Action pairs prominent lawyers and judges with incoming law students in small groups to discuss the importance of civility and work through a series of ethical and professionalism hypotheticals. This important program provides an opportunity for interaction between first-year law students and veteran lawyers and judges, and is a key component of the Introduction to Law Orientation sessions for 1L students.
