FRENCH SCHOLAR PROGRAM
Our courses in Introduction to French Law and European Community Law are taught by our resident scholar from the Universite d'Auvergne in Clermont Ferrand, France. For nearly 30 years Detroit Mercy Law has had an exchange program in which we send a graduate to teach topics in U.S. Law and we receive a graduate from Clermont Ferrand. One graduating senior from Detroit Mercy Law is selected each year for this one year opportunity. Fluency in French is preferred but not required.
INTERNATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES PROGRAM
In support of our commitment to better prepare students to practice in a global legal community, Detroit Mercy Law is proud to offer its International Opportunities Program (IOP). Envisioned as a meaningful way to encourage and enable students to participate in a summer study-abroad program, the IOP awards eligible Detroit Mercy Law students with a $1,000 loan, which is then forgiven after the student successfully completes the study-abroad program and returns to Detroit Mercy Law for the following Fall term. Since financial aid is normally available for program tuition, this loan is intended to defray travel and accommodation expenses related to such study.
Students who seek the IOP loan must enroll in one of more than 20 approved study-abroad programs. These rigorous programs span the globe (i.e., Africa, Asia, Europe, North America, and South America) and will expose students to legal systems other than the United States.
