American Inns of Court (3990)

The Law School has the only Michigan charter membership in the American Inns of Court Foundation, whose goals are instilling excellence in advocacy and professionalism. Eighteen third- and fourth-year students are selected to participate in monthly meetings throughout the academic year focusing on trial techniques and ethical problems with the experienced trial attorneys and judges ("Masters of the Bench") and less experienced attorneys ("Barristers"). The attorney's extensive interaction with the "Pupils" also offers a unique opportunity to learn in the social and professional environment of the bench and bar in the Detroit legal community. Additional course information: Applications for the program must be made to the Program Administrator by May 15 preceding the student's final full year of study.
