All Michigan attorneys are encouraged to participate in a day of service on the upcoming Martin Luther King Jr. holiday. The State Bar of Michigan has created an online resource guide to help lawyers find community service and pro bono volunteer opportunities within their local communities on Jan. 19.
The new Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service resource guide will help lawyers search for pro bono service opportunities by county. Attorneys can also find younger attorneys to mentor on SBM’s mentor board or look for community service volunteer opportunities in their local communities. Attorneys who can’t dedicate time to voluntary activities on MLK Day are encouraged to donate money to the Access to Justice Fund.
The State Bar asks attorneys who participate in the Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service to submit their activities to the A Lawyer Helps program, to inspire other lawyers to participate in the program next year.
