How To Get Into
Michigan Law School
Michigan Program Overview
Michigan is consistently one of the highest-ranked law schools in the United States. Though located in the Midwest, its national reputation attracts student and employers far and wide and its esteemed alumni can be found everywhere in the country and the world.
Aside from top-notch academics, Michigan Law is perhaps best known for its collaborative and friendly environment. Despite being one of the larger law schools, students are encouraged to interact not only with each other but faculty, staff, and administrators. Due in part to its setting, Michigan has been able to foster a strong sense of community where, for example, mini-seminars are often held at professor’s homes. This culture is further reflected in its admissions process where Michigan truly considers each applicant holistically.
Noteworthy for candidates interested in pursuing a dual degree, Michigan is also home to over 100 top-ranked graduate programs including the Ross School of Business and Ford School of Public Policy. In fact, Michigan Law has formally established 14 dual degree programs in conjunction with 13 different graduate programs.
Located in Ann Arbor, which was named the No. 1 place to live in a 2017 study conducted by Niche.com, “the University of Michigan is completely absorbed into the city.” Because of that, students can enjoy exploring the Nichols Arboretum or going to a Michigan football game while also having easy access to films, concerts and live shows at the historic Michigan Theater or sophisticated dining at The Gandy Dancer. For those looking for more of a metropolis, Detroit is a close 50 miles away and Chicago within 2 hours reach by train, bus or car.
