A Journalist's Guide to Covering MI Courts

"A Journalist’s Guide to Covering Michigan State Courts is, above all else, about helping
the reporter and commentator to understand the process of justice. Drafted by judges,
attorneys and journalists, this guide covers the state justice system from its structure to
basic procedures to terminology. Here you will also find practical advice for covering the
courts, rules governing public access to court proceedings and files, an overview of
attorney and judicial discipline procedures, and more. A Journalist’s Guide will be
updated periodically to keep pace with changes in the justice system and to better meet
journalists’ needs."
