Alumni Council

At the urging of a few young alumni, the Alumni Council was established in the fall, 2019. It is an initiative designed to better engage and serve Detroit Mercy Law’s most recent graduates. The Council receives its directives from the Detroit Mercy Law Alumni Association and director of alumni relations.

The Council, comprised of up to 10 alumni, seeks to better serve and support recent graduates with programs and communications that are uniquely tailored to their own needs and perspective. It seeks to foster and sustain the active involvement of young alumni in the support of Detroit Mercy Law and the Alumni Board. 

The Council will also act to shepherd the development of volunteers and future leaders in ways that deepen their commitment to the school and prepare them for active roles in alumni and philanthropic affairs.

The Council also acts as a voice for young alumni concerns to the Alumni Association and the University. Council members:

  • serve at the pleasure of the Executive Committee for the Detroit Mercy Law Alumni Board
  • serve for a term of two years (must be active during term)
  • may be eligible for re-election to another term at the expiration of their first term.
  • Will be eligible to run for election to the Detroit Mercy Law Alumni Board.
