GETTING INTO THE MLAW GROOVE  Before starting classes May 30, Michigan Law summer starters spent two days learning about the Law School and taking part in community service projects in Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti. From tours of Hutchins Hall to a barbeque in Aikens Commons, summer starters were given an opportunity to explore campus, meet professors, and form friendships with classmates in their section before the official start of term.
