  • Curriculum Vitae

A 1977 graduate of UDM School of Law, Professor Bryce first
worked as an attorney with Union County Legal Services in
New Jersey, handling many of the public interest types of
cases the Urban Law Clinic handles today. He later did
environmental legal work with the New Jersey Public
Advocate's office, specifically working on exclusionary
zoning cases.

In 1982, Professor Bryce became an Assistant Attorney General with
the New York Attorney General's office and eventually
worked on the nine-month Love Canal Environmental Trial for
punitive damages. While working with the AG's office he
also began to teach as an adjunct for Columbia University,
teaching environmental law to Ph.D candidates in Public
Health. Thereafter Professor Bryce joined the faculty at
St. John's University School of Law, where he initiated
their first law clinic program.

In 1999, he became the Division Director for the Environmental Division of the New Mexico Attorney General's office where he worked on numerous environmental cases and legislation. Professor Bryce then returned to UDM in 2001, as a professor. He has since overseen the work of the Urban Law Clinic and the
growth or creation of the Immigration Clinic, Mediation
Clinic, SADO Clinic and the Externships.

In addition to work at the law school, Professor Bryce is on the Board of the Michigan Irish Society of Lawyers and a member of the Catholic Lawyers Society of Michigan.
