Older Wiser Law Students

Older Wiser Law Students (OWLS) is dedicated to fostering a supportive community for non-traditional law students while articulating, promoting, and advocating for our needs and goals at the University of Michigan Law School. While we don't take ourselves too seriously, we also recognize that law school poses different challenges and experiences for those who are transitioning from other careers, balancing spouses and/or children, or simply took some time off before law school. We realize that some types of get-to-know-your-classmates events may have lost their luster for those who have been over 21 for awhile, yet we still crave the interaction and networking that a collegial law school provides. The organization is open to all students who share its mission.
