Courts on Campus

These exhibitions give Detroit Mercy Law students a first-hand look at what it is like to practice before a trial or appellate court.  In the past several years, the United States Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims, Michigan Supreme Court, the Michigan Court of Appeals, and the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan have held official court sessions at UDM. During the hearing day, attorneys present their arguments, and the Justices and attorneys frequently take extra time to give advice to students.  These events are always well attended and touted as a tremendous learning opportunity.
