University Honors

Michigan Supreme Court Justice

Honorary Doctor of Laws



Ever since your graduation in 1970 from the Detroit College of Law, you have demonstrated to the youth of Michigan that hard work, perseverance, and fortitude can, indeed, bring you to the pinnacles of power. Your talents, abilities and accomplishments have carried you all the way to the Michigan Sate Supreme Court. Still, you do not forget the community and its needs. Despite the arduous, hard-working hours you have spent as a Supreme Court Justice since 1986, you serve as a Detroit Economic Club director, as Vice-Chair of the Michigan Cancer Foundation Board of Trustees, as a member of the national Bar Association's Judicial Council Executive Committee and as a life member of the Fellows of the American Bar Foundation. It is in appreciation of your sense of loyalty to your various communities, the talents you have shared with them, and your outstanding achievements in the legal field that we confer upon you an Honorary Doctor of Laws Degree. In a very special way, your life exemplifies the Jesuit tradition of excellence and service to others. Commencement, University of Detroit, School of Law, May 15, 1988.
