About the Ann Arbor Campus

The Ann Arbor campus is located less than one half hour from Metro Airport and just minutes from downtown Ann Arbor. The campus has a small class size, low student to faculty ratio, caring and accessible professors who are dedicated to helping students learn, a fully-functioning law school building, easy access from two major limited-access highways, and easy access to downtown Ann Arbor's great restaurants, arts, and entertainment venues.

Living in Ann Arbor

Ann Arbor is considered one of the most desirable places to live in America, along with being one of America's great university cities. It has a bustling business sector, particularly in technology, and a lively arts and entertainment culture.

We chose this location because it had already been established that a law school of that size was feasible there, because there are two major universities in the area that produce on average over a thousand graduates per year with only a small number enrolling in the University of Michigan Law School, and because the area is one of the best known and most desirable university and business communities in the country.

Housing Options


The Ann Arbor campus is located near the intersection of US-23 and M-14, near the University of Michigan's north campus and Domino Farms. The Ann Arbor campus facility is composed of 84,500 square feet, with a full-service law school library; a computer lab; large, medium, and small classrooms; seminar rooms; a moot courtroom; an outstanding law clinic workspace; and offices for faculty, administrators, and staff.

In its current configuration, it will accommodate slightly over 500 students, plus faculty and staff. The building was designed by renowned architect and Frank Lloyd Wright apprentice, Alden B. Dow.

On-site parking is available.
