Apply For a Fellowship

The Voice for Justice Committee at the University of Detroit Mercy School of Law invites 1L and 2L students to apply to the Public Interest Fellowship Program. The number of fellowships awarded is dependent upon the amount raised during the Voice for Justice Auction and the Race for Justice 5K.

The core component of the Fellowship is an eight week paid summer internship in a non-profit organization. Fellows will receive $4,500 for their work. (Additional funding for living expenses may be available for those students who are awarded Fellowships out of state or in foreign countries.) In previous years, Fellows have worked at the State Appellate Defenders Office, the African Women's Lawyer's Association in Accra Ghana, the American Civil Liberties Union, the Women's Survival Center, Freedom House, the Unitarian Universalist United Nations Office, the legal office of former Governor Granholm, the Michigan Department of Civil Rights, Freedom House, Legal Aid and Defender's Association, the Maurice and Jane Sugar Law Center for Economic and Social Justice, the Human Rights Department at the City of Detroit, and Western Michigan Legal Services.

Fellows will be selected based upon their interest and commitment to public service along with their record of academic achievement. Fellows are responsible for securing their own placements.

Applications are available through Career Connect.  Application deadline is April 1, 2015.

EVENTS


Red Mass - UDM Law Campus

Tuesday, September 29, 2015 - 12:00 pm

UDM's 103rd Annual Red Mass and Renewal of the Lawyer's Oath of Commitment will be held at Ss. Peter and Paul Jesuit Church beginning at 12:00 p.m., followed by a complimentary luncheon in the atrium of the School of Law.  Red Mass is an occasion for judges, lawyers, civic leaders, faculty, staff, and law students of all faiths to pray together at the beginning of the new judicial term, asking God to bless, strengthen, and enlighten us, so that in cooperation and mutual trust we may effectively achieve justice for all.

The Most Reverend George V. Murry, S.J., Ph.D., Bishop of the Diocese of Youngstown, Ohio, will celebrate the Mass.  Hon. Patrick J. Duggan ('58) of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan will lead the Renewal of the Lawyer's Oath of Commitment.
