On Friday, April 28, 2017, the Davis-Dunnings Bar Association will hold its 20th Annual Otis M. Smith Scholarship Banquet at the Crowne Plaza Lansing West in Lansing Michigan. The program starts promptly at 6:30 p.m.

The Davis-Dunnings Bar Association is a special interest bar association whose mission includes various forms of outreach to the underserved and under-represented members of the greater Lansing community.

In addition to awarding scholarships to well-deserving law students, we will be presenting four additional awards to those in the greater Lansing community:

  • Trailblazer: Lawrence Nolan, Esq.
  • Distinguished Barrister: H. James White, Esq.
  • Humanitarian: Trinity A.M.E. Church
  • Rising Star: Taneashia R. Morrell, Esq.

Further, Paulette Brown Esq. will be our Keynote speaker for the evening. Ms. Brown is the immediate Past President of the American Bar Association. She made history as the first African American woman to head the American Bar Association. We are excited to have her as our guest speaker.

The Scholarship Banquet provides an opportunity for us to recognize these laudable individuals. However, most importantly, it supports a great cause because proceeds from the Scholarship Banquet help fund the Davis-Dunnings Bar Association’s programs and scholarships.

Ticket Prices:

$65 – Regular

$50 – Student (must show proof of current student status)

$600 – Table of 10
