    As a First-Year Law Student, You'll Have the Opportunity to Secure Hands-On Work Experience

    First-year students at Detroit Mercy Law serve clients through mini-clinics.  In the past, first-year students assisted with immigration matters, criminal expungements, and Social Security Disability. These experiences distinguish Detroit Mercy Law students on their resumes. During the summer, our first-year students gain legal experience. At the Public Interest Fair, first-year students meet with over twenty employers and secure internships with public interest organizations and government offices. First-year students also work at law firms, in judicial chambers, and with legal departments of Detroit-based businesses. The downtown location of Detroit Mercy Law is within walking distance of many of these employers!

    We Are Committed to Your Success and to Educating You on Careers and Professionalism

    We partner with students, alumni, employers, and faculty to facilitate career counseling and education, professional growth, networks, and employment opportunities. We connect first-year students with legal professionals. Recent programs include the Bar Association Fair, Lunch with a Lawyer, Professionalism in Action, diversity receptions, and more!
