The University of Detroit Mercy School of Law Student Bar Association cordially invites you to the Great Gatsby Barrister's Ball. 

This year we invite leaders from the legal, business, civic and political communities to attend the Barristers’ Ball to celebrate the best of the Southeastern Michigan community. This black-tie affair will commemorate The University of Detroit Mercy School of Law's 100-plus years of commitment to legal education, diversity, excellence in the legal profession, and service to our metropolitan Detroit area.

The Barristers’ Ball is the signature event for the UDM Law Student Bar Association. This year we hope to raise money through sponsors and donors to implement a new student scholarship for students who show financial need, outstanding academic achievement, as well as student and community service involvement. 

Please help us make this a successful event and implement our student scholarship fund by attending this event and/or becoming a sponsor.
