Why MSU Law?
A SPARTAN LEGAL EDUCATION WILL:
PREPARE YOU FOR EXCEPTIONAL OUTCOMES
It’s no secret: legal careers aren’t easy. From the bar exam to the post-graduation job search, we equip hardworking, ambitious students to rise to the challenge. Along the way, they learn how to be leaders in the legal profession and in their communities.
Our 12,500+ grads fight crime, advocate for social justice, bring business acumen to legal fields, and protect innovators across the country.
ALLOW YOU TO
EXPLORE THE LAW
No matter what you’re passionate about, you’ll have opportunities to find legal work that inspires you. We offer nearly 140 different elective courses every year, and our students explore interdisciplinary coursework in MSU’s other graduate programs.
MSU Law’s academic programs allow you to build expertise in a particular area of legal practice. These programs foster close communities of like-minded students and expert faculty.
ENCOURAGE YOU TO
MAKE A DIFFERENCE
The MSU Law community is continually inspired by the meaningful public service performed by our students. You’ll have the opportunity to promote social justice in our many clinics, resolving important legal issues – and changing lives.
Our clinics provide desperately-needed services to underserved clients, including immigrants, Native families, low-income renters, prisoners with civil rights grievances, and young journalists.
PROVIDE YOU WITH
DEDICATED STUDENT SUPPORT
With an array of law-specific support programming and a network of student wellness resources, our faculty and staff members commit to helping students navigate the demands of a legal education and emerge as confident professionals.
Faculty members play a key role in shaping the student experience. Their standout scholarship and mentorship will motivate you to explore careers that you hadn’t previously considered.
