East Lansing, Michigan. The Student Bar Association (SBA) of Michigan State University College of Law is seeking community support for its Barrister’s Charity Ball to be held on Saturday, February 19 from 6:30 p.m. to midnight at the MSU Kellogg Hotel and Conference Center in East Lansing. The ball will raise funds for Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Ingham County, an organization that trains community volunteers to advocate for abused and neglected children in the court system.

For many years, the SBA has held an annual ball for the law college’s students, faculty and staff. Two years ago, in February 2003, the ball was expanded to support CASA and include members of the community.

The SBA is asking community organizations and members to purchase sponsorships from $35 to $1,000. Sponsors will receive tickets, advertising and other recognition based on their contributions. Those interested should contact the SBA office at 517/432-6934.

MSU College of Law is located at Bogue and Shaw Lane on the campus of Michigan State University in East Lansing. Founded in 1891, the college is accredited by the American Bar Association and is a member of the Association of American Law Schools.
