July 26, 2012 - 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

Agenda & Teleconference Number

The meeting will be at University of Michigan Law School. The meeting will be in Room 1025 South Hall. South Hall is a new law school building on the corner of State and Monroe streets. (The address is 701 South State St. but the entrance is off Monroe.) Lunch will be served during the meeting.

This meeting will be before the Legal Services Corporation board meetings, which will include a series of public presentations and events beginning at 1:30 p.m. Because of the full LSC schedule, this will be a shorter "report only" meeting.
