Miller Canfield

Building Support

Twenty-seven attorneys from Miller Canfield— an international firm headquartered in Detroit— have made a gift of more than $250,000 to the Law School’s building project.

“It’s natural that Michigan’s oldest law school and Michigan’s oldest law firm should team up to support this magnificent addition to the Law Quad we all love,” says Michael P. Coakley, ’82, principal at Miller Canfield and leader of the firm’s Litigation & Dispute Resolution Group. Coakley was instrumental in coordinating this significant collective gift.

“Miller Canfield has been one of the top employers of Michigan Law School grads for many years,” says Michael W. Hartmann, ’75, principal and CEO of the firm. “It is an honor for Miller Canfield to have a ‘home space’ at the Law School in recognition of our alumni’s support of the project. Congratulations to Dean Caminker and the entire Law School community for completing this wonderful project.”

A dedication ceremony for a named space in the Law School will be held later this year.
