The Lawyers Club, which is located on the west side of the Law Quadrangle, can accommodate 227 JD and LLM students; almost half of our first-year students choose to live here. Thanks to a generous donation from Charles T. Munger of Berkshire Hathaway, the Lawyers Club reopened in fall 2013 after a year of extensive renovations. The newly renovated space offers single rooms with private or semi-private bathrooms and 11 corridor lounges.
Many services of the Lawyers Club are available to all members of the Law School community. The Main Desk acts as a nexus of information for residents and provides services such as making change, selling stamps, and provision of a dry cleaning service. Any law student may borrow a key to the Club in exchange for a $10 deposit.
The Club rents seven guest rooms with private baths for the convenience of students, faculty, and guests. Advance reservations are required and may be made up to three months in advance. Please contact the desk (734.764.1116) during weekday business hours.
Complete lunches and dinners may be purchased at the Club. Non-residents may purchase individual meals or may open a pre-paid debit system account called Entrée Plus. Entrée Plus allows students to eat meals as they wish and have the reduced fee deducted from their account through using their MCard. Entrée Plus is a University-wide system and may also be used for other purchases on or near campus. Please see the Club's Main Desk or U-M Housing for further details and specific meal prices.
Weekly menus and service times are posted outside the Club's dining hall. Meals are served at lunch and dinner daily, except Saturday, when there is no evening meal.
This program is sponsored by the Law School's Office of Student Affairs and allows students to invite a guest faculty member to join them for lunch in the Club's dining room while Student Affairs pays for the professor's meal. Arrangements for this program should be made in advance at the Club's main desk.
Club residents may sponsor a non-resident who brings their lunch from home and wishes to be their guest in the dining room. The main desk will issue a guest pass to the sponsor, which allows the guest to bring their bag lunch into the dining hall and receive a complimentary beverage. Brown Bag passes are available Monday through Friday during lunch only. First year students who do not yet have a sponsor may see the Director, Diane Nafranowicz.
Student groups may inquire about reserving public spaces in the Club for meetings, receptions, etc. All such events must be approved by the Club's Director and meet restrictions for room capacity, catering, security arrangements, etc. Please see the Director a minimum of two weeks in advance.
