Employment During Academic Year Policy
The policy regarding student employment during the academic year, as adopted by the Detroit Mercy Law Faculty in April 2015, states:
Employment at any stage in law school may pose special concerns if such work is neither flexible nor manageable. Therefore, it is recommended that full-time law students should not be employed for more than twenty hours per week during the academic year. Full-time is defined as a course load of twelve credit hours or more per semester.
