Michigan has long been known as a different kind of law school—where high-achieving students manage to treat each other with kindness. Your classmates have your back here, as a recent student commencement speaker attested. Flying home to be with his sick mom toward the end of the academic year, he made a hasty Facebook post asking his fellow students for advice, then turned his phone off for takeoff. When he landed a couple of hours later and turned his phone back on, he found that 56 classmates had already replied with referrals to doctors and hospitals and information about the condition. Yup. It’s like that here.
