For the third straight year, the University of Michigan Law School's JDs in the D will host Detroit Month to increase awareness and engagement in the storied city.
Starting Oct. 6, guest speakers who are involved in revitalizing Detroit, including Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder, '82, will present on such topics as entrepreneurship, development, crime, urban farming, the media, and nonprofit and law firm work. Also planned are tours of Detroit's Shinola watch factory and Atwater Brewery on Friday, Oct. 24.
In planning Detroit Month, JDs in the D co-chairs Dorothy Heebner, 3L, and John Lin, 3L, sought to bring speakers with diverse viewpoints to the Law School. Their goal, they said, is to engage students in a conversation about the city's challenges and opportunities and to spur them to get involved in helping the city.
"There are all kinds of interesting and exciting things happening in Detroit, but students in Ann Arbor don't get exposure to them," Lin said. "Detroit Month is an opportunity to share all of the good things about the city."
Detroit Month events (which are subject to change) are as follows:
