Cooley Law is now Western Michigan University Cooley Law School
Introduction
Cooley teaches students the knowledge, skills, and ethics needed to be a success in the law and a valuable member of society.

Cooley has developed a legal education curriculum and program designed to prepare its students for the practice of law through experienced-based teaching of lawyer skills. Students learn to apply legal theory to situations they may encounter as practicing attorneys.

As part of Cooley's Professionalism Plan, Cooley students are also taught the Professionalism Principles adopted by the Thomas M. Cooley Law School community.

Cooley was founded in 1972 by a group of lawyers and judges led by the then Chief Justice of the Michigan Supreme Court, Thomas E. Brennan. The school was named for Thomas McIntyre Cooley, a legal scholar and practicing attorney of the 19th century.

Cooley Law School is a private, non-profit 501(c)(3) Michigan educational corporation and is accredited by the American Bar Association (ABA) and the Higher Learning Commission (HLC).
