MSU Law Welcomes Incoming Class of 2013 Juris Doctor Candidates

Michigan State University College of Law welcomes to campus the incoming Class of 2013. This year’s incoming class includes 273 students. Approximately half of the new, first-year students are from out-of-state, with students arriving 36 states outside Michigan and five foreign countries.

Incoming students are graduates of 125 colleges and universities and their academic majors range from political science to business to the fine arts.

Racial and ethnic minorities comprise 22 percent of the 1L class, and 43 percent of incoming students are female.

Students arrived at MSU Law for Immersion Week on August 19, 2013. Immersion Week is designed to provide an introduction to law school life and the ethical responsibilities of the profession. The week includes a Foundations of Law class that teaches students how to read a legal opinion and how to brief a case.

The week also includes several three-hour service projects at various community and non-profit organizations throughout the greater Lansing area. Students and faculty involved in the service projects then return to the Law College for a barbecue reception.

The service project is coordinated by the MSU Law Office of Student Engagement as part of its mission to create and develop community connections by organizing outreach efforts for students throughout the year.
