State Attorney General Jennifer Granholm will present “Michigan Law According to the Attorney General” at 3 p.m. Thursday, April 5, at Meadow Brook Theatre on the university’s campus.
Granholm's speech will focus on the current issues being handled by the attorney general’s office, including consumer fraud, the right of Internet privacy, environmental protection, worker protection, civil rights, hate crime prevention and health care fraud.
Granholm was elected Michigan’s 51st attorney general in November 1998. The key priorities for her office are child protection, high-tech crime prevention, consumer and environmental protection and senior citizen safety.
An honor graduate of both the University of California at Berkeley and Harvard Law School, she was appointed Wayne County Corporation Counsel in 1994. She also was a federal prosecutor in the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
Granholm has been recognized as "Woman of the Year" by the YWCA and as a "Michigander of the Year" by the Michigan Jaycees. She also has been honored as one of the ten "Lawyers of the Year" by Michigan Lawyers Weekly magazine. In 1997, she was named one of Crain’s Detroit Business Magazine’s “Top 40 before 40.”
