Experience “A Day in the Life of a Detroit Mercy Law Student”

A well-rounded legal education should include rewarding experiences both inside and outside of the classroom.  Detroit Mercy Law takes great pride in providing real-world experiences outside of the classroom as one of the first law schools in the country to have a law clinic, and is one of few to require at least one clinical experience for all of our students.  Our location in Downtown Detroit, just steps away from courthouses, law firms and national corporations, provides numerous opportunities for externships and mentoring.  Of course, we are also proud of our exceptional academic program.  We offer a rigorous and robust curriculum taught by an experienced and dedicated faculty.  We are committed to educating the complete lawyer!  We invite you to experience “A Day in the Life of a Detroit Mercy Law Student” on Thursday, March 3, 2016.  You are welcome to meet our Dean, members of the Detroit Mercy Law faculty, administration, and current students and visit a real class.  Optional Law School Tours are also available.
