UDM Law—Tradition, Service, and Connections



Educating and inspiring students since 1912

For more than a century, UDM Law scholars have achieved success in Detroit and around the globe as dynamic attorneys, political leaders, judges, prosecutors, and CEOs of major corporations.

Promoting service, ethics, and intellectual rigor

Jesuit and Mercy values blend together at UDM Law to create an open-minded learning environment that focuses on intellectual rigor and service to others. At UDM Law, the ideals of ethics and professionalism are emphasized, demonstrated, and practiced throughout every aspect of our curriculum, both inside the classroom and in off-campus settings.

Connecting students, faculty, and alumni

UDM Law is a small, diverse, collegial community where students explore differing thoughts and perspectives in an inclusive setting. As part of this supportive environment, students readily access the help of faculty and staff and enjoy networking with and learning from our alumni.

University of Detroit Mercy Legacy

UDM Law is part of the legacy of the University of Detroit Mercy (UDM), Michigan's oldest and largest Catholic university.  UDM was founded more than 125 years ago.  UDM's founders, the Society of Jesus (Jesuits) and the Religious Sisters of Mercy, have always believed in the power of education to change people and, through them, the world.  To learn more, please visit www.udmercy.edu.
