Professionalism & Judicial Conduct: Introduction
This guide seeks to help the researcher understand how the legal profession in Michigan is governed. To that end committees, boards, and commissions are mentioned as well as sources for rules and cases. The Michigan Supreme Court is empowered by statute and the state constitution to regulate lawyers and judges in the state of Michigan.
The guide is organized according to the topics listed to the left, in the guide outline.
In the sections of the guide focusing on print materials, the "location" provides the call number for a work. Clicking on the title takes a user to the relevant entry in the catalog. Where possible, guide sections about statutes link to the appropriate law.
And please contact us if you have any questions or need further guidance.
