Bentley Law School records

The Law School (University of Michigan) Records and Publications collection is your gateway to Law School Records held at the Bentley Library. Some records that might be of special interest include:

Bentley Library policies on In-Person Research and Duplication of Materials (i.e., copies, scans, and photos).

Bentley Necrology file

The University of Michigan Alumni Files Index, formerly known as the Necrology File, can be searched online. It covers students from the entire university, including the Law School.  The amount of information and number of pages in a file varies.  If you are not able to visit the Bentley Library, you can request a photocopy be sent to you.
