Designing Your Life in the Law

Now that you are in law school, how do you create the life you want? What do you want out of life after Michigan Law? Wondering how to weave together what fits, is doable, and will be truly meaningful? Join us for Designing Your Life in the Law. This course applies the innovation principles of problem solving to the "wicked problem" of designing your life and vocation in and beyond Michigan Law. We'll approach these lifelong questions with a structured classroom framework where you can work out your ideas in conversation with your peers.

Topics include the integration of work and worldview, the realities of engaging the workplace, and practices that support vocation formation throughout your life. This class includes seminar-style discussions, personal written reflections, and guest speakers. The capstone assignment is the creation of an "Odyssey Plan" focusing on taking action following your graduation from law school.
