A HEAD START ON LAW SCHOOL  Before starting classes on May 31, summer starters spent two days learning about the Law School and taking part in community service projects in Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti. Nearly 90 summer starters chose to get a jump start on law school rather than begin classes in the fall.
