JBAM Spring Fling

On May 3, 2016, JBAM celebrated Spring with about 75 attorneys, judges, and members of the legal community.  It was a wonderful event full of live music, food, drinks, and networking.  Participants also had an opportunity to explore the new website and join/renew their memberships online.  

Thank you to everyone who came out to make it such a special night.  Special thanks to our sponsor hosts, Arcadia Home Care and Staffing and Brooks Kushman PC; to our sponsor friends: Ellis Porter PLC and US Legal Support; to our supporters who contributed towards a wonderful raffle: Stan Bershad, Marty Deutch,  and Kepes & Wine, PC; and to our co-chairs: Matt Cohn and Lauren Edelman Rennert.  

We look forward to seeing all of you at future JBAM events.

JBAM’s Women in Law in MyJewishDetroit

Women in law know it’s a dance – a constant effort to find the balance between power and grace in a competitive, often relentless work environment. The numbers tell the story: women start out on equal footing with their male peers in law school, comprising about one-half of the graduating classes of the American Bar Association-accredited law schools. But their numbers fall quickly through attrition (marriage and babies) within their first years of practice.
