Information Technology

Are You "Computer Ready" for Law School?

Technology is a real part of your legal education at WMU-Cooley Law School. E-mail is used for official communications. Web-based course pages are used extensively at Cooley. Legal writing skills are heavily emphasized and the use of computers and word processing are important to the successful completion of writing assignments. Many of our clinical programs require document preparation and communication in electronic format. You have the option to write your exams on your laptop. Are you prepared?

We encourage you to assess your current computing skill set and be proactive in developing your ability to use word processing, e-mail and web-based resources. Community education classes in your local area may offer just the courses you need to develop or expand your computer skills. There are also a variety of books available which provide instruction on basic computer skills.

WMU-Cooley's IT support team provides computing, networking, and information resources to the law school community.

Students have access to computer labs on all campuses, and can access the Internet through Cooley's wireless network WMUCooley. WMU-Cooley Law School also provides EDURoam wireless access for guests with accounts from affiliated colleges and universities worldwide.

Cooley does not require that students purchase a computer.
