Daniel Manville '82, an Assistant Clinical Professor at Michigan State University College of Law and Director of the MSU Civil Rights Clinic, is profiled in the April 9, 2012 issue of the Jackson County Legal News.

From the article: "Daniel Manville is a strong advocate for civil rights, and the rights or prisoners. He knows the issues only too well - he walked that path himself, spending almost four years in prison in the 1970s.

Manville, assistant clinical professor at Michigan State University College of Law and director of the MSU Civil Rights Clinic specializes in this area because of his own experiences, and the injustices he saw while confined and after his release.

Daniel Manville

Manville went on to earn a master's degree in criminal justice from MSU; and a J.D. from Antioch School of Law in Washington, D.C.

I studied criminal justice as a follow-up to my having been imprisoned, and I was drawn to law by the social injustice I saw on TV in the late '50s and early '60s, with racial discrimination and violence against blacks."
