Become Active in the Section

It is easy to become active in the Business Law Section. As is true with many volunteer organizations, the time and effort put into the Section by its officers, Council members, Committee chairs, and other active members directly correlates to the viability of the Section and its worth to all Section members.

Celebrating Constitution Day—Volunteers Sought

On September 16, 2016 we will celebrate Constitution Day. On that day, many lawyers take time to make presentations on our national document to local school children. There are 4 presentations which can be downloaded here. These presentations, which are interactive, deal with actual cases. They are: Jury Trials (suggested 6th grade), Free Speech (suggested 7th Grade), Equal Protection of the Laws (the Japanese Internment Case–my favorite, 8th grade), and Search and Seizure (11th grade). At present, there are no lists of schools which wish to participate but a simple call to your local school should take care of that. I have given presentations to public and parochial schools in Birmingham and Dearborn and have found participation most rewarding. If you do decide that you want to participate by leading a presentation, please contact Dick Fellrath at (248) 519-5064.
