Diversity Resources

The Office of Career Planning is committed to identifying and promoting career opportunities for students from groups that have been traditionally underrepresented in the legal community.

To find an updating listing for the dozens of local/state and national bar association diversity programs, writing competitions, job fairs and employer diversity programs that are available to Michigan Law students, please check the listings in Symplicity.

Diversity opportunities can be easily found as a sub-tab within the MLS Job Bulletin > Diversity Fellowship/Scholarship.

To view archived diversity opportunities, go to the "Expired Jobs" tab within the "MLS Job Bulletin."  Choose "More Filters" then set "Position type = Diversity Fellowship/Scholarship" and click on "Search."

If you have any questions navigating Symplicity or identifying where these opportunities are listed, please email lawcareers@umich.edu or visit the Office of Career Planning during walk-in hours.  If you are a first-year law student, be sure to review the Advice from Recent 2Ls regarding Diversity Resources.
