Michigan's Law on Recording Conversations

As a participant, you have the right to record.

A person can record their own conversations without obtaining the consent of all other participants (sometimes dubbed the “participant exception” to the eavesdropping statute.) In effect, a person in Michigan can record their own conversations with the consent of only one person: themselves. 

While it may be a convenient shorthand to think of Michigan as a one-party consent state, that is not literally true. Michigan does not permit just anyone to record conversations so long as they have the permission of any one person involved in the conversation. Only the participant themselves may record their own conversations with their own consent.  

Remember this important right should the need arise.  There are many phone call and voice recording applications available to choose from.
