Many CALC alumni describe their experience in the clinic as one of their best experiences in law school. More than 1,500 Michigan Law alumni have served as CALC student attorneys over the past 30 years. CALC alumni have gone on to positions in academia, major private companies and law firms, nonprofits, and every level of government. Many have pursued careers in child welfare, serving as juvenile public defenders, attorneys for parents, guardians ad litem, and directors of child welfare organizations. Of the 29 Michigan Law Skadden Fellows, 13 were involved in CALC. Other prestigious post-graduate fellowships received by CALC alumni include: the Equal Justice Works Fellowship, AmeriCorps Attorney Fellowship, Coffin Family Law Fellowship, National Women's Law Center Fellowship, the Polikoff-Gautreaux Fellowship, and the Zubrow Fellowship in Children's Law through the Juvenile Law Center. Below are examples of what our alums have been up to.
