Detroit Mercy Law recognizes that the practice of law is increasingly affected by world affairs, and we prepare students to deal with the challenges presented by our global economy. We offer a variety of courses that will enhance students’ understanding of international law and issues. We encourage students to travel beyond our domestic borders by participating in a summer abroad-program sponsored by an aba-approved law school, and we offer scholarships to support those studies. We also have an on-going relationship with Universite d'Auvergne in Clermont-Ferrand, a highly regarded university in France.
Detroit Mercy Law’s unique dual degree program with the University of Windsor allows students to participate in a demanding course of study that sets them apart in the increasingly competitive job market. This program allows you earn both an American and Canadian J.D. in just three years. Even if students only plan to practice law on one side of the border, the knowledge gained from studying two different legal systems is valuable in this global economy. Moreover, because Detroit Mercy Law and the University of Windsor are just 10 minutes apart by car, it is easy for students to study and participate in different programs at both schools.
