    Job Postings Policy

    Detroit Mercy Law does not post unpaid opportunities with for-profit entities. Postings for unpaid internships or externships for academic credit are limited to non-profit, government, or public interest agencies. Before submitting a posting for an unpaid position, please confirm that your posting complies with this policy and the Fair Labor Standards Act.

    Employment During Academic Year Policy

    The policy regarding student employment during the academic year, as adopted by the Detroit Mercy Law Faculty in April 2015, states:

    Employment at any stage in law school may pose special concerns if such work is neither flexible nor manageable. Therefore, it is recommended that full-time law students should not be employed for more than twenty hours per week during the academic year. Full-time is defined as a course load of twelve credit hours or more per semester.
