Belveal To Conduct Ethics Training for Michigan Lawmakers

18 February 2021 MLive News

Partner Jennifer Belveal was mentioned in a MLive article, “Michigan House Speaker requiring ethics training for lawmakers as part of government transparency push,” about a plan to require members of the Michigan House of Representatives to undergo ethics training as part of an ongoing push for more government transparency by House Speaker Jason Wentworth.

 

Belveal, who specializes in legal ethics, government investigations and white-collar crimes, was to conduct the two-hour training session with House Republicans Thursday. House Democrats are expected to complete a separate, similar training session in the near future.

 

The effort is intended to bring lawmakers up to speed on appropriate conduct in interactions with lobbyists and constituents, set clear expectations for ethical government operations and “start the momentum” for ethics and transparency-related litigation, Wentworth said.
