Markeisha Miner, Assistant Dean of Career Services and Outreach, discussed in The National Law Journal how Detroit's reorganization and redevelopment have generated exciting work for law students and attorneys in the city.

Dean Miner commented that the positive employment outcomes include an expansion of summer-associate programs for students and a demand for recent UDM Law graduates with computer, mechanical, and electrical engineering backgrounds due to the new U.S. Patent and Trademark Office in Detroit.

UDM Law alumnus Ralph McDowell ('86), Chairman of the Bodman law firm, stated in the article that transactional work has also been growing in Detroit. He commented this is a result of companies outside the U.S. seeking investment opportunities in the city, because land costs and the cost of living are both low. There has also been growth in legal services provided for real estate leasing, acquisitions, sales, and lending in Detroit, McDowell said.
