Community and Economic Development Clinic
The Community and Economic Development Clinic (CEDC) is dedicated to promoting vibrant, diverse, and sustainable communities by providing transactional legal services to nonprofit and community-based organizations, and social and creative enterprises. The CEDC was founded in 1991 and was most recently known as the Urban Communities Clinic. We provide creative solutions to the transactional needs of clients in our mission to promote community and economic development in Detroit and other underserved urban areas of the region.
Our clients work with student attorneys under the close supervision of faculty members who are licensed attorneys with significant transactional experience.
