My Journey​

Many of his cases while in private legal practice involved the Americans for Disability Act (ADA).  This included successful actions against such defendants as the University of Michigan, the Oakland County Road Commission and Delta Airlines.

 

Justice Bernstein also served for eight years on the Wayne State University Board of Governors, including as Chair of the Board.   He further was an adjunct professor of political science at the University of Michigan.

 

He is a Phi Beta Kappa graduate of the University of Michigan and received his law degree from Northwestern University.  In his spare time, Justice Bernstein is an avid runner as well as a competitor in both marathons and triathlons.  He lives in the Birmingham/Bloomfield area.
