Why did you choose UDM Law?

Faith. UDM law provides a great opportunity for persons of the Catholic faith to learn the law while developing their relationship with God. Opportunities range from the annual Red Mass (a time for judges and persons of the legal community to come together), membership in the St. Thomas More Society, and daily services at Ss. Peter & Paul.

What do you like best about attending law school in Detroit?

It is a great time to be in downtown Detroit! There are great restaurants, sports games, and museums within minutes of campus.

How would you describe the UDM Law community?

Invested in my future. I've found that the faculty, administration, and even fellow students have been supportive and want everyone to succeed.

What have you benefitted from the most at UDM Law?

The career services office has been friendly, helpful, and efficient. They provide a mock interview program which helps to hone one's interviewing skills and will even sit with you to develop a personal career plan specifically tailored to how you want to use your legal education.
