Miller Canfield to Host Friend of the Court/Amicus Briefs Discussion on May 9

April 24, 2013

Join former Chief Justice of the Michigan Supreme Court and Miller Canfield lawyer, Clifford Taylor, along with appellate practitioners Matthew Leitman and Paul Hudson, for “Using Friend of the Court Briefs to Protect Your Organization,” Thursday, May 9, in Bloomfield Hills, Mich., from 7:30-8:30 a.m.

The presenters will offer a unique perspective on how to use amicus briefs to protect your business or organization’s interests and explain how these briefs differ from those of the parties to the case, how they can be used to persuade the court to hear a case, and the types of cases in which amicus briefs can be most persuasive. 

“It's important for Michigan businesses and organizations to know that there are cases affecting their interests every term in the Michigan courts – and that they have an opportunity to have their voices heard in those cases even where they are not parties in a case,” said Hudson.

Breakfast and registration begins at 7:15 am. The event is free. Pre-registration required by May 2 to Sandy Bera at Location details will be given at registration.
