“My time with the Beaumont Corporate Compliance Team was very enlightening as to what compliance was and the specific intricacies involved with medical compliance. I also was exposed to and learned about corporate office structure and communication. It offered me a unique experience of applying what I had learned the year before and looking forward to learning more in the coming years based on what I gained from the position.
” Louis Magidson '23, Beaumont Health

“The negotiation skills and understanding of mediation I learned in my externship are transferable and valuable for the law firm work I hope to do. Coming to law school, I felt insecure about my inexperience in more professional roles. Externing allowed me to gain experience in a new world while still being a student and asking as many questions as I needed to. I learned how to thrive in a professional environment.”

I worked alongside the Director of the William Booth Legal Aid Clinic as well as two staff attorneys who are both Detroit Mercy Law alumni. With their help, I drafted various motions, met with clients about family law issues, and was able to observe court hearings. I was even able to make my first court appearance. I got real-world experience in a setting where the attorneys were able to give me support and feedback.” Julianne Bursinger '23, Salvation Army William Booth Legal Aid Clinic
