On Aug. 17, 2011, the law school and Olivet College made the partnership official. The agreement launched the state's first-ever LL.M./MBA insurance program, creating only the second such educational program in the nation. In 2010, they coordinated curriculum programs aimed at supporting job growth in Michigan’s insurance industry.
