Summer in Ann Arbor is really nice, not only because the weather is beautiful, but because the campus gets really empty and chill. It's the only time of year when you can reliably find parking, for example. That said, I've never heard of a sublet going for 300 dollars for the summer. Routinely, they go for 200-300/month. I got mine for 250 and it was about 2 blocks away from the law school, but it was a room in a house. If you want an apartment to yourself and you want it to be somewhat nice, I'd say you're looking more to the 350 (before haggling). There are a lot more people looking to lease than rent though, so you might get a really great bargain. The area right around the law quad is bordered by the main campus to the north, the business school and dorms to the east and the union and more dorms to the west, so there's not a huge amount of apartments that are actually 5 minutes from the law quad (I lived off Thompson near the Union). There's tons that are 10 minutes though. I guess just check craigslist, marketplace.umich.edu and the sublet section of the UM housing website. And haggle a lot. If you live on North Campus, apartments are a lot nicer and cheaper and there's a bus that will drop you right at the law quad (well, across the street)... but you'd be living on North Campus. And that's just no fun.
