Federal Judge Holds Live Hearings at Cooley Law School

February 23, 2012 – On Tuesday, February 21, 2012, the Honorable Paul Maloney, Chief Judge of the United States District Court for the Western District of Michigan, turned the mock courtroom at Thomas M. Cooley Law School's Lansing campus into a real courtroom, by conducting live hearings in two important federal cases. Lawyers came from across the state and as far away as North Carolina to argue their cases to Chief Judge Maloney with 50 eager law students observing.

After the hearings, Chief Judge Maloney eagerly received and answered student questions in the courtroom.

Chief Judge Maloney was introduced by the U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Michigan, Don Davis, who urged Cooley students to consider remaining in the Western District for its high level of professionalism and collegiality.

The event was capped off by a reception in Cooley's boardroom.
