Our Law School is enriched by the wide variety of interests and career paths that our graduates pursue. This issue of Law Quadrangle features a newsman-turned-activist, a software development entrepreneur, and lawyers who negotiate deals on behalf of clients that range from celebrities to tuna.
This diversity of pursuits has increased as more of our students take time off between their undergraduate and professional educations. This year, only 25 percent of our entering class went straight through from undergrad to Michigan Law—a sharp decline from years past. Although matriculating students still view a law degree as a way to keep their options open as they explore career paths, many more students now arrive in the Quad with a clear plan of how a Michigan degree will benefit their future careers and with significant experiences that have influenced those goals.
