From the Alumni Association President
Many of us remember those early days of law school – navigating the building/classes and establishing friendships that last throughout law school and our professional careers. While the law school experience is undoubtedly different in many ways from what many alumni experienced (imagine how useful a laptop would have been in law school), there are certain constants of a law school education that all alumni will realize. I know my law school education helped me develop my critical thinking, writing skills, and work ethic, all of which have assisted me throughout my career.
A law school degree has allowed many of us to have rewarding, meaningful employment. Among other things, it is an asset that hinges in part on the continued success of the law school. As the current President of the Board of Directors of the Alumni Association, I am calling on all of our alumni to participate in some meaningful way to Detroit Mercy Law. Selfishly, it is a way to preserve and enhance the value of your asset. The Alumni Association Board of Directors has created four committees to assist the law school in different ways – Networking, Recruiting, Fundraising, and Events. Your assistance can be as simple as a modest donation to the law school, attending an event, or hiring a student as a summer law clerk.
I want to acknowledge and congratulate Mark Wisniewski (‘90) and Macie Tuiasosopo (’13), recipients of, respectively, the Time & Talent and Rising Star Awards. Those fine alumni received their awards at the dinner following the very successful September 30th golf outing held at The Inn at St. John’s.
I am looking forward to a successful year at Detroit Mercy Law, and I hope you can contribute in some way to that success.
