Dedicated to Social Justice

dsc0402-small-1

UDM Law is inspired by the jesuit-mercy tradition of service to others and dedication to the full development of each and every student. Students represent vulnerable members of our community and work to restore hope to victims of abuse and oppression in our nationally-ranked clinical program. While we are proud that our clinical program is recognized nationally, link, we are even prouder of the work our students do in this program. For example, in our immigration clinic, students advocate for those seeking asylum in the united states and canada. Students also represent low-income veterans and their families seeking benefits from the veterans administration, criminal defendants, and participate in our juvenile justice appellate clinic. Regardless of the clinic students select, they learn valuable skills and make a difference in the lives of others.

UDM Law is also actively involved in the Detroit community. Students volunteer regularly at the Warming Center at the church adjacent to our Law School. We have regular service projects in which faculty, staff, and students work together to improve our community. Finally, we support students who want to work for public interest groups such as Freedom House, the State Appellate Defender's Office, and other legal aid organizations with our Public Service Fellowships.

Finally, we are dedicated to providing every student with the support they need to be successful. Our accessible faculty members are there to answer question, serve as mentors, and provide an intellectually-demanding course of study. Our academic support team gives students who need additional assistance the help they need. Finally, our active student organizations give students the opportunity to develop the leadership skills needed to become leaders in their communities after graduation.
