MLK: Detroit deputy mayor, M Law grad to speak at MLK Day event

A 30-year career in public service will help Law School alum and Detroit Deputy Mayor Saul Green bring unique perspective to his Martin Luther King Day talk Jan. 18 at Michigan Law.

Green, who earned undergraduate and Juris Doctorate degrees at U-M in 1969 and 1972, is scheduled to deliver a talk on “New Challenges and the Same Old Pitfalls,” beginning at 4 p.m. in Room 220 of Hutchins Hall. A question-and-answer period will follow, along with a brief reception.

The former U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Michigan has been a Detroit deputy mayor since 2008. Green also has served as Wayne County Corporation Counsel, chief counsel at the Detroit field office of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, and senior counsel at Miller Canfield. As a federally appointed independent monitor, Green also helped the city of Cincinnati implement police reforms.

Green brings that distinguished base of experience to the classroom at Michigan Law, where he serves as an adjunct professor, co-teaching classes on fair housing and police integrity.

His talk is being co-sponsored by the Law School and several student groups, including the Michigan Law Review, the student chapter of the ACLU and the Law School Student Senate. The event is free and open to the public.
