UDM Law Warming Center Clinic on Tenant Rights

Thirteen UDM first-year law students assisted attorneys from Legal Aid and Defender Association, Neighborhood Legal Services, and Detroit Center for Family Advocacy at a Clinic UDM Law hosted at Ss. Peter & Paul Jesuit Warming Center on January 15.  The students and attorneys provided information and individual consultations to 35 guests on housing related matters.  Additionally, Sydney Booth ('14), a participant in UDM's Solo and Small Firm Incubator Program, introduced her newly formed law firm, Rushing Law, and conducted a short presentation on Criminal Expungement.  

 

UDM Law students with attorneys participating in the Warming Center Clinic held on January 15, 2015 at Ss. Peter and Paul Jesuit Church in downtown Detroit next to the School of Law:

Student Valerie Mahoney (1L) commented on how much she enjoyed participating in the Warming Center Clinic:  "It was nice to speak with guests then shadow the attorney as the guests presented their issues and the attorney discussed options.  Following each consultation, I was able to speak with the attorney to gain a better understanding of the issues.  I think this is a great opportunity to see how the legal community impacts the lives of others, and this also gives students a chance to look at areas of the law they may not have previously considered.  I look forward to the next clinic."
