About the organizer

The Wolverine Bar Association is an active affiliate of the National Bar Association. The roots of the Association are in the Harlan Law Club, which was founded in 1919 by several attorneys in the Detroit area who were excluded by local bar associations throughout the state. The club’s name was selected in recognition of the late United States Supreme Court Justice John M. Harlan. Justice Harlan was dedicated to the goal of equality of treatment under the law for all in our society. His philosophy was exemplified in the dissenting opinion of the 1896 U.S. Supreme Court Case of Plessy v. Ferguson. The Wolverine Bar Association replaced the Harlan Law Club and expanded its influence from Detroit to the entire “Wolverine” state.
