Detroit Mercy Law continues to monitor the COVID-19 situation and respond in support of students and the Law School community. Visit our COVID-19 webpage 

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Detroit Mercy Law has created a special COVID-19 Law Student Emergency Fund to provide financial support to law students who are facing COVID-19 related financial hardship.

Our goal is to relieve unforeseeable financial burdens so our students can focus on the most important things in their lives and be successful this semester.  Your contribution will have an immediate impact on our students' lives.  Click here to make your contribution.
