Admissions Events

Learn About the Admissions Process

Join Grace Henning, Director of Admissions & Communications, for a virtual small group advising appointment. Director Henning will go over the LSAT, what you need to prepare for the application, and Detroit Mercy Law programs. You’ll have the chance to ask questions live or submit questions through your registration. Sessions will not be recorded.

If the pre-scheduled small group advising times do not work with your schedule or you have follow-up questions from the session you attended, you are welcome to schedule an individual appointment with Director Henning.
