The Michigan State Bar Foundation has awarded University of Detroit Mercy School of Law a $10,000 grant to expand its Solo and Small Firm Incubator Program to include services to senior citizens in Wayne, Oakland, and Macomb counties. The incubator program is designed to provide a supportive environment for select new law graduates who are committed to beginning a solo or small firm practice serving low and moderate-income individuals. Through this expansion, the incubator attorneys will begin providing free services to seniors, including educating them on their legal rights, self-help assistance with legal matters, and appropriate referral sources. The incubator program was established in October of 2014 with one of only seven catalyst grants awarded to law establishments across the country from the American Bar Association.
