The Honorable Patrick J.

Judge Duggan has served both as President of the University of Detroit Mercy School of Law American Inn of Court since 1999 and Master of the Bench since 1986.  He is also a former President of the Livonia Bar Association.

ADC-Michigan Director Attorney Fatina Abdrabboh said, “We are honored to include a person like Judge Duggan who has been tireless in encouraging, mentoring, and cultivating the new generation of leaders in the legal world. Through his principled stances over the years he is someone who has certainly shown that being a good person and a good lawyer can be one and the same.”  

Judges Night, an annual event hosted by the ADC Michigan, was established in an effort to recognize judges who exhibit distinguished leadership and those committed to justice and strive to uphold the letters of the Constitution. This Year, City of Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan will deliver the Keynote Address. This is ADC’s 12th Annual Judges Night Reception.
