Justice Richard Bernstein became the first blind justice, elected by voters statewide, to the Michigan Supreme Court in November 2014. With a commitment to justice and fairness, Bernstein began his 8-year term in January 2015.

Prior to being elected to Michigan’s highest court, Justice Bernstein was known as a tireless advocate for disabled rights as an attorney heading the public service division for The Sam Bernstein Law Firm in Farmington Hills, Michigan. Blind since birth, Justice Bernstein is a Phi Beta Kappa graduate of the University of Michigan and earned his juris doctorate from Northwestern University School of Law.

We are inviting Justice Bernstein as part of the University’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion initiative. At Hillel, we strive to make people of all abilities feel welcomed and included. We were inspired by Justice Bernstein’s commitment to his state and the law and the messages he shares on inclusion and overcoming adversity as a blind individual.
