At Michigan Law, you can partner with U-M engineering, business, medicine, or with other students in U-M programs to create your own entrepreneurial venture or serve as legal counsel to these students through the Law School's Entrepreneurship Clinic.
The Clinic welcomes assistance from practicing attorneys and law firms anywhere in the world. There are several ways you may assist the Clinic.
First, for client matters requiring legal expertise, we may partner with a practicing attorney with the needed expertise. This attorney would typically represent the Clinic client on a pro bono basis and also mentor the Clinic law students to assist them in representing the Clinic's client.
Second, the Clinic is always willing to engage practicing attorneys to assist with educating the Clinic law students. Examples include guest lecturing during the clinic seminar, providing relevant and timely education materials, providing specialized education to particular law students on one of their client matters, or providing suggestions to the Clinic faculty concerning relevant topics or examples.
We are always looking for new ideas to make this Clinic truly exceptional and first of its kind, so please do not hesitate to contact us with ideas.
