Michigan Law today has a wide spectrum of educational and extracurricular activities available to our students. As the world has grown both smaller and more complex, new programs and organizations have been created to educate, inspire, and engage.
For example, our international program includes not only classes, but also symposia, speakers, workshops, pro bono projects, externships, and student organization activities. And our renowned clinical law program offers students the opportunity for hands-on legal practice under the supervision of law professors. In our more than 50 student organizations, students can delve into a particular area of law, work for a cause, or participate in activities they enjoy. Writing for one of our six law school journals hones skills of research, writing, and editing.
Additionally, private gifts help the Law Library to purchase books and electronic materials and to preserve books and journals through binding, digitizing, and deacidifying these materials.
The support of our alumni and friends is important to helping Michigan Law strengthen these current programs and many others, and to be prepared to meet new interests as they arise.
