  • About MSU Col­lege of Law

    Michi­gan State Uni­ver­sity Col­lege of Law is a dynamic school with a proud rep­u­ta­tion for excel­lence. MSU Law stu­dents are chal­lenged by the rigor of our aca­d­e­mic pro­gram and are pre­pared to enter the legal pro­fes­sion with tan­gi­ble, practice-​ready skills.

    As a col­lege inte­grated with a world-​class uni­ver­sity, MSU Law offers stu­dents the per­sonal atten­tion often asso­ci­ated with pri­vate legal edu­ca­tion com­bined with the oppor­tu­ni­ties of an inter­na­tion­ally known, research uni­ver­sity. The aca­d­e­mic pro­gram­ming is enhanced by dual degree options, cer­tifi­cates and con­cen­tra­tions, externships/​internships, and clin­i­cal pro­grams designed to con­nect the­ory with prac­tice and pro­vide stu­dents with aca­d­e­mic knowl­edge along with hands-​on experience.

    MSU Law fac­ulty is com­posed of first-​rate schol­ars who offer an excit­ing learn­ing envi­ron­ment and demon­strate a strong com­mit­ment to teach­ing. They strive to ensure that all stu­dents are pro­vided with the tools to suc­ceed in any legal envi­ron­ment. Our fac­ulty hails from the ranks of estab­lished and accom­plished attor­neys, widely respected schol­ars, and the most promis­ing newly cre­den­tialed fac­ulty can­di­dates. Our dis­tin­guished pro­fes­sors are also very acces­si­ble to stu­dents. Their offices are located close to lec­ture halls so after class, pro­fes­sors use what is learned in the class­room as an impe­tus for fur­ther discussion.

    The Col­lege makes its home on the beau­ti­ful MSU cam­pus set in the heart of East Lans­ing, Michi­gan – the arts, cul­tural, and recre­ational cen­ter of mid-​Michigan. Every­thing stu­dents need for their stud­ies is located in one build­ing – sur­rounded by the largest con­tin­u­ous cam­pus in the coun­try. MSU Law is also four miles away from the State’s Capi­tol, which pro­vides a con­nec­tion to the leg­is­la­ture and Supreme Court for Michigan.

    Focus Areas

    While our bal­anced required cur­ricu­lum pre­pares grad­u­ates for inter­re­lated and often over­lap­ping areas of prac­tice, stu­dents have the oppor­tu­nity to build exper­tise in a spe­cific area of the law. Stu­dents may focus their stud­ies in any of the fol­low­ing areas:
