I wanted to gain hands-on experience in law school that I will be able to apply to a future career working in public interest law. I learned a lot about the local laws of Detroit. Specifically, how the city offers increased protections for individuals that may not be recognized as protected class by state or federal anti-discrimination laws.” Liam Marin '22

Having practical experience before graduating and passing the bar was an invaluable experience. While externing at CRIO, I not only further improved both my legal researching and writing skills, but I also had the opportunity to compose interrogatories and conducted complainant, respondent, and witness interviews. Moreover, I established relationships with professionals in the legal field and worked under the supervision of well-established civil rights investigators.” Nina Warda '23
