Only our name has changed! In order to better address the scope of our work, we have changed our name to the Workers' Rights Clinic. We are a free clinic, staffed by Michigan Law students, that is focused on workers' rights, primarily by addressing their issues with Unemployment Insurance claims. We provide advocacy, advice and assistance to Michigan workers.

First-year law students, under the supervision of an experienced attorney, receive course credit to provide free Unemployment Insurance advice and representation to UI claimants. We provide not only a practical experience opportunity for students to develop real-world advocacy skills but also an opportunity for them to engage their community in significant and meaningful ways.
Contact our office by phone: 734.936.2000 or email:
From time to time we reach maximum case capacity and aren't able to provide full representation. If intake is closed, check here for our referral list of other lawyers that provide representation to UI claimants.
Please be careful not to miss any appeal deadlines. You have 30 days from the date of mailing of any Unemployment Insurance determination or decision to appeal. If you disagree with a determination or decision, you must appeal within 30 days to protect your rights. You can find information about how to appeal a decision in our Know Your Rights brochure.
If you need to apply for Unemployment Insurance benefits you can do so online or by phone. Find out how to apply for benefits on the
Michigan Unemployment Insurance Agency website.
The Ruth Mott Foundation provides partial funding to the WRC to represent claimants in Genesee County and North Flint.
