<<As if that isn't enough, WSU students can walk to the nearby Detroit Public Library, the International Institute, and various museums and educational centers. In 2000, WSU announced the completion of its new law school complex which features the state-of-the-art Spencer M. Partrich Auditorium, study areas, offices, the Arthur Neef Law Library, a variety of classrooms and lecture halls, and moot court headquarters. The school's law library is made up of 620,000 volumes, a computer lab, private study rooms, wireless Internet, a variety of special collections, and much more.

One of only two public law schools in Michigan, WSU prides itself on the fact that many of its graduates go on to work at the upper-most levels of law. The faculty at WSU makes sure students are prepared to reach their goals after graduation by providing them with a legal education that is both theoretical and practical.



In his message to prospective and current students on the school's website, Dean Frank H. Wu comments on Detroit's recent rejuvenation, calling attention to new developments from houses to stores to cultural centers.

"In this setting, Wayne dominates the bench and the bar in the city and the state as few other law schools do in any region," Wu said. 'The number of applicants for the first-year class has been increasing; students' academic qualifications have been ever more impressive. Our alumni play leadership roles in every aspect of legal practice and public service, ranging from the large and mid-size firms, the specialized boutiques and small offices to the federal and state judiciary, the legislature, and civil rights groups."

He goes on to alert prospective students of the changes that are to come for WSU.

'In the current and coming academic years, we will see tremendous positive changes," Wu continued.' We have increased the Law School's scholarship funds by approximately $1.45 million annually. We are planning to add four new tenured/tenure-track professors. We are installing wireless internet access throughout the classrooms and the latest residence hall will include deluxe suites for law students."

WSU law school, founded in 1927 by a group of lawyers who thought it would benefit the community to create a public law school, started out as an evening program and was called Detroit City Law School in the beginning. However, it was renamed as Wayne University in 1933 and took on its current title in 1956.

In their free time, WSU law students have many choices at their fingertips. From parks to restaurants, museums to casinos, Detroit has a wide variety of entertaining options to choose from. Want to have some fun in the sun? Try visiting the Detroit Zoo. Want to soothe your finals-induced headache? Kick back and listen to some tunes at the Detroit Symphony Orchestra Hall. Would you rather drink a beer and watch some sports? Take your pick from the Detroit Lions, Pistons, or Tigers. And if you like jazz, you'll be happy to learn that Detroit boasts one of the most extensive outdoor jazz festivals in the nation.
