ISIAL is a unique Bar Association of Michigan attorneys and law students who meet on a monthly basis to exchange ideas and information in a fun social setting. Founded in 1978, ISIAL is the local irish american legal community.


Each meeting is filled with judges, private and public-sector attorneys, professors and others who are interested in things Irish. In addition to our monthly meetings, our past activities have included bi-annual service projects with Focus: HOPE, outings to productions, to sporting events, and our premier annual events: the St. Patrick’s Day Brunch in Corktown each March, and the ISIAL Dinner Dance at the Detroit Athletic Club each April.
