Building the College of Law

MSU’s commitment to opportunity and its core identity as the world’s foremost land-grant institution—a university committed to rolling up its sleeves to solve big problems and transform lives—complements the core values of the Detroit College of Law and creates extraordinary opportunities for the next generation of law students and lawyers. Together we want to build the twenty-first century law school. The College of Law will translate MSU’s strengths into exciting new opportunities for law students.


The College of Law seeks to raise $23.0 million in the Empower Extraordinary campaign. We will achieve this goal with a mix of endowment and annual funds.


To date we have raised $28.7 million, but more private support is needed to achieve our full potential and propel this great college of law forward.

“At Michigan State University, we’re building a law school that’s financially-accessible to bright, passionate students who will shape the laws of tomorrow and act as leaders not just in their profession, but in their communities as well. Whether we’re envisioning the future delivery of legal services, advocating for policy reforms and access to justice, or honing our students’ courtroom skills, you can be sure that Spartan lawyers will make a lasting impact at home and around the world.”
