Typically, 20 transfer students with outstanding first-year law school records are admitted to Michigan each year. We find that our community benefits strongly from this influx of new scholars with proven records of achievement. And just as the students do who enter Michigan Law in their 1L year, our transfer students experience extraordinary success in their legal careers. Through our On-Campus Interview Program and the support of our Career Planning counselors, transfer students enjoy wide-ranging 2L summer and post graduate employment options. Of the 134 transfer students from 63 different law schools who have graduated in the past five years, more than 98% reported jobs within 10 months of graduation. Over 10% began their legal careers with prestigious judicial clerkships, the vast majority at the federal level. More than 65% went to jobs at private firms, with more than 75% of that group going to National Law Journal 250 and American Lawyer 100 firms. Those who chose not to work at firms went on to sought-after legal positions in public interest, the government, and corporations, at employers like the ACLU and J.P. Morgan. As a whole, these transfers spread out to 45 cities across the nation and overseas, including Hong Kong and Singapore.
