Edward H. Pappas,
Chair, Professionalism Advisory Committee

When I was President of the State Bar of Michigan in 2008-2009, I made professionalism the theme of my administration. Part of my effort to improve the professionalism of lawyers included reaching out to law schools to find ways to communicate to law students the importance of professionalism in our legal careers. Cooley Law School immediately reached back to partner with the State Bar to pilot a program during its orientation for incoming students. More from Edward Pappas
