Michigan State University College of Law was founded as Detroit College of Law and was the first law school in Detroit. It moved to East Lansing in 1997, when it was assimilated into Michigan State. But the school remains financially independent and receives no state funding.

The school prides itself on strong practical training and received an A- from preLaw magazine, second best in the region.

It offers several clinics with 10 clinical practice areas and 150 externship sites domestically and abroad. The moot court and advocacy board give students the opportunity to argue before real judges and attorneys to help polish their skills. Its externship offerings include a semester-long program in Washington, D.C., as well as placements throughout the country.
