By Terry Carella, Director of Communications, Western Michigan University Cooley Law School
Western Michigan University Cooley Law School was established in 1972 to provide an opportunity to those who share the dream of becoming a lawyer. We excel in teaching not only the law but how to practice it competently and ethically so students can succeed in today’s – and tomorrow’s – world.
We are proud to be a part of Western Michigan University, one of the nation’s top 100 public universities. WMU is rated by the Carnegie Research Foundation as a “high research” institution, by U.S. News as a top-tier university, and by Washington Monthly as a “best buy” and top-100 university.
In WMU we have a partner that enthusiastically shares our access, teaching, service, and professionalism philosophies. With three shared-degree programs already in place, we are now building many new opportunities for learning, research, and job placement.
Cooley has always been a leader in innovative legal education by providing students with knowledge of the law, the skills they need to practice it competently, and the ethics they must observe while doing so. WMU-Cooley’s philosophy of knowledge, skills, and ethics prepares students well to practice law.
WMU-Cooley Law School has been a proud partner with Michigan Radio for more than a decade. We collaborate with Michigan Radio to connect with prospective students and alumni across the state. Sponsoring Michigan Radio allows us to reach an educated, affluent audience.
