Centers supporting the public interest

Additionally, the Damon J. Keith Center for Civil Rights and the Levin Center at Wayne Law showcase our commitment to civil rights advocacy and legal governance. The Keith Center upholds the legacy of Judge Damon J. Keith (LL.M. '56) as a hub for civil rights teaching, research and action as it addresses the needs of Southeast Michigan and the country. Meanwhile, the Levin Center trains a new generation to embrace their responsibility of ensuring that public and private institutions operate with integrity, transparency and accountability in honor of U.S. Sen. Carl Levin's distinguished career in public service.
