University of Detroit Mercy School of Law will hold its 10th Annual Voice for Justice Auction, on April 14, 2012 from 6:30-11:00 p.m. at the Detroit Golf Club.

This year’s event will include live and silent auctions, hors d’oeuvres, desserts and live entertainment. The auction will include more than 200 items including gift certificates, gift baskets, sports memorabilia, electronics and sports/concert tickets.

These fellowships expand UDM Law's longstanding tradition of service to the community. Students selected to receive the 2012 fellowships will spend approximately eight weeks as a summer intern for non-profit organizations, serving or advocating for the poor, disadvantaged, marginalized or underrepresented of society.
