My first contact with Lorraine Weber, the current Project Director of both the Task Force on Gender Issues in the Courts and the Task Force on Racial/Ethnic Issues in the Courts, came during the Spring of 1987 while I was completing my Career Development experience as a court clerical worker at the Wayne County Probate Courts in Detroit. At the time, Lorraine was the Chief Court Administrator for the Probate and Juvenile Courts in Wayne County. As my superior, I was offered limited contact with Lorraine as my duties allowed. A personal and professional relationship resulted from such contact and was maintained after my position with the Probate Courts had expired. In the Fall of 1987, Lorraine opted for a major career change by concluding her work as Court Administrator and accepting a job with the State Court Administrative Office as an independent contractor assigned to coordinate two task forces investigating gender, racial and ethnic bias in the Michigan Court system. With a serious interest in this project and an understanding of the tremendous amount of work which needed to be completed, I offered my services to Lorraine Weber for a three month period beginning in December of 1988. It is within this context that I was provided an internship under Lorraine Weber and unique opportunity to fUlfill my Senior Individualized Project obligation.If you are not a current K College student, faculty, or staff member, email firstname.lastname@example.org to request access to this SIP.
