We recently made several donations to important funds at the University of Michigan, related to healthcare and justice. One of the causes we chose to support was the Law School Fund.
What does the Law School Fund do?
The Law School Fund helps to provide scholarship opportunities for Michigan Law students and supports the Michigan Law faculty. It also enables the law school to run curricular activities such as the Legal Practice Program and the Clinical Law Program.
What makes Michigan Law unique?
The University of Michigan Law School is one of the best in the nation. Many of the faculty are preeminent experts in their field, and alumni go on to become leaders in the public, private, and academic sectors.
The law school was founded in 1859. Not only does it have a long history of churning out great lawyers, but also of championing diversity. Here are a few examples:
- Michigan was the second American university to award a law degree to a black student.
- Michigan was the first major law school to admit a woman.
- By the year 1890, more women had graduated from Michigan than any other law school.
