Grand Rounds-May 27, 2021

For Grand Rounds on May 27, 2021 at 7am our speaker will be the newly elected Washtenaw County Prosecutor Eli Savit, who will discuss the need for criminal-justice reform.


An Ann Arbor native and an University of Michigan Law School grad, Eli Savit began his career in private practice in Washington DC, where he represented criminal defendants; victims of domestic violence; asylum applicants; victims of consumer fraud; and special-needs students. He went on to clerk for Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. He then returned to Detroit and served as senior legal counsel. In this capacity, he led criminal-justice reform and the City’s public-interest litigation.

He ran for and won the position Washtenaw County Prosecutor in November 2020 with the goal of bringing criminal justice reform to our county.
