Board of Directors

The Board of Directors of the Detroit Mercy Law Alumni Association meets every four to six weeks and is primarily responsible for promoting a continuing, strong relationship between the alumni and Detroit Mercy Law. The Board of Directors has an Executive Committee comprised of the officers, which is responsible for carrying out the strategic direction of the Board.

The Board of Directors concentrates its work in the areas of alumni relations and events; selects the annual Time and Talent Award honoree; and leads the sponsorship drive for the annual Alumni Reunion Weekend each fall.
