  • Prospective Students
    danced or maybe just because they ve shared a table with other students and me at Grizzly Peak or Jolly Pumpkin These are my experiences but they are not unique faculty participation in student life is an important part of the Michigan Law experience and virtually every professor and administrator has a similar list of ways they routinely interact This is a place at which faculty connect with each other You can read about the stellar accomplishments of our faculty elsewhere on this website Here I d like to focus on a different aspect my colleagues garden Ann Arbor apparently has heavy soil skydive bake bread sing karaoke ride motorcycles play poker do hot yoga play jazz piano visit lighthouses and curl you know the Olympic sport One of my colleagues once held a state high school basketball record in Indiana another s life was changed by the movie Fight Club and another has a daily diet that consists of toast breakfast chocolate lunch salad dinner and movie theater candy late night snack which sounds a lot better than another colleague who at the time of this writing but probably not for long is a vegan but only until 6 p m Here s why these things matter to students If faculty members know their colleagues well enough to know who visits lighthouses consider how easy it is for us to point a student to the colleague who can best supervise a paper on for instance voting rights national security law or patent settlements If we know each other well enough to know who will sing Mack the Knife at karaoke consider how easily we can connect students with the best faculty member to contact relevant alumni and employers And if we know who bakes bread and you bake bread consider the ease with which you can form meaningful relationships with faculty This is a place in which much of what we do is calculated to enhance this collegiality Our Office of Admissions puts together a cohesive and diverse class not just an amalgam of smart people with high numbers Our LLM graduate program for foreign lawyers is deliberately small and integrated into the JD curriculum as we expect those students to share fully in the Michigan experience Our spectacular buildings promote collegiality many of our students live in the Law Quad and the Aikens Commons is a fantastic gathering space for all of us in the community We hold mini seminars in professors homes we don t rank students until after graduation and we make our Loan Repayment Assistance Program available to graduates in any type of practice This ethos of support inclusion and authenticity connects current students and more than 20 000 alumni around the world Make no mistake Our collegiality does not mean that this place is easy This is an elite institution at which we conduct serious meticulous research and we expect piercing analytical rigor in the classroom and often in our hallway discussions We work
