Elizabeth Morales-Saucedo, 3L
Elizabeth Morales-Saucedo already looks forward to visiting Michigan Law as an alumna. Future family in tow, the first thing they’ll do is tour the Law Quad.
“I’ll point out my favorite study spots, and tell them the story of my first cold-call,” she says. “I’ll watch their faces fill with awe at the sight of the Reading Room, and then again down in the library subs, where you see our iconic buildings rise upwards.”
From the Lawyers Club where she lived for two years to the clinic offices where she counseled clients as a student-attorney, every corner of the Quad has a special association for her.
Beyond the scholarship that made Michigan Law more affordable for me, countless alumni have been extremely generous with their time and advice whenever I’ve asked.”
“In these buildings, I met some of my closest friends, many of whom I got to know through student organizations,” says Liz, who was a member of the Latino Law Students Association, the First Generation Law Students, and the Michigan Journal of Race and Law. “Even though I’m still making memories here, I know I’ll carry them with me for the rest of my life.”
Michigan Law is unique in that it’s impossible to forget where you are; every brick is a reminder of the Law School’s history and prestige. Generations of lawyers have built this great institution, and a remarkable alumni network continues to support students like Liz today.
“Beyond the scholarship that made Michigan Law more affordable for me, countless alumni have been extremely generous with their time and advice whenever I’ve asked,” she says. “At Michigan Law, it’s hard not to feel special.”
