DOING GOOD BY DOING DEALS  To celebrate the many accomplishments of the students, alumni, faculty, and clients who have made the International Transactions Clinic's last five years a success, the ITC hosted a special program on Sept. 12, 2013 at Michigan Law. The program, featuring a number of speakers—ranging from ITC alumni and supervising attorneys, to clients such as Design Innovations for Infants and Mothers Everywhere Inc. (DIIME), Ashoka, Habitat for Humanity International, and the International Finance Corporation (IFC)—recognized the remarkable work of nearly 80 law students, who, as part of their clinical experience, have advised live clients in the conduct of more than 100 transaction matters around the globe. Rachel Robbins, former IFC general counsel, delivered the keynote address. Members of the State Bar of Michigan-International Law Section, marking their own 25th anniversary, also joined the celebration.
