EMPLOYMENT DURING ACADEMIC YEAR POLICY

The policy regarding student employment during the academic year, as adopted by the Detroit Mercy Law Faculty in April 2015, states:

Employment at any stage in law school may pose special concerns if such work is neither flexible nor manageable. Therefore, it is recommended that full-time law students should not be employed for more than 20 hours per week during the academic year.  Full-time is defined as a course load of 12 credit hours or more per semester.
