Foundation Programs

Law Related Education and Civic Programs

The Macomb County Bar Foundation hosts many programs throughout the year to benefit the public.  Foundation hosted programs give opportunity for grade school students, high school students, adults and seniors to learn and participate in civic education.

In partnership with the Michigan Center for Civic Education, the Foundation began hosting the Macomb Regional Tournament in 2014.  Owing much to the relationship between the Macomb County bench and bar, the Foundation uses the Macomb County Circuit courtrooms, jury room, and conference rooms to host the tournament.  Further, the Foundation successfully recruits real Judges to preside over the mock trials.  Many more attorneys volunteer to act as court officers, scoring judges, while other attorneys coach the high school teams as they prepare for competition.  The Macomb Regional Mock Trial has served as a model for other areas of the State and is held the first Saturday of March each year.
