Encyclopedia > Detroit College of Law

The Detroit College of Law, established in 1891, was the first law school in the Detroit, Michigan area and the second in the U.S. state of Michigan. The college opened in 1892 with 69 students and was incorporated in 1893. It claims to be the oldest continually operating independent law school in the United States.


The college became affiliated with Michigan State University in 1995 to take advantage of enhanced facilities and association with a Big Ten institution. It relocated to East Lansing, Michigan in 1997, when the original building was demolished to make way for Comerica Park.


In April 2004, the school changed its name to become the MSU College of Law. Although it operates as a constituent college of the university, the college of law remains financially independent and receives no state or university funding.
