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 now approximately 600 members strong. 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, assisting with the Legal Aid Clinic at Most Holy Trinity Church, outings to productions such as "Riverdance" and 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.

Quite simply, ISIAL offers great networking, but more importantly, it provides its members with friendship, camaraderie and the opportunity to form lasting professional and personal acquaintances--along with sharing a pint of Guinness or two.

To the members of the Law Alumni Board of Directors:

It is with a heavy heart that I must report to you that the son of Charlie and Pat Rutherford, Charles Jr. (Law
'96), known as Chuck to his friends, is one of the two people who is currently missing in Lake Huron.

Chuck and his girlfriend were apparently boating to Mackinac Island
and were last heard from Friday morning. News reports indicate that their boat was found Friday night idling near Marquette Island, about 11 miles northeast ofMackinac Island.

The Dean and I have both spoken with Charlie and Pat today and have offered to assist in any way possible. A private search team continues to look for the couple, and the Michigan State Police are investigating the matter. At
this point, the Rutherfords are requesting that all of us pray for their son and his safe return. If we learn of any additional means that we can assist the family during this difficult time, we will let all of you know.

I have also discussed the possibility of a special mass with the Catholic Lawyers Society. W will keep you
posted as that develops.
