December 6, 2012 - On Wednesday, Nov. 28, the Oakland County Board of Commissioners presented Associate Dean John Nussbaumer from Thomas M. Cooley Law School's Auburn Hills campus with a proclamation for the school’s outreach efforts, which have aided the Oakland County community.
During the commission's regularly scheduled meeting, Michael Gingell, chairperson, Oakland County Board of commissioner, read the proclamation, which said, "This prominent institution has aided the greater community through its exceptional outreach efforts led by faculty and supported by students whose contributions, include providing legal services to veterans with its Service to Soldiers Program, Family Law Assistance Program and Estate Planning Clinic for Seniors 60 plus, which are only a few outreach initiatives implemented at the Auburn Hills campus."
"We are honored that the Oakland County Board of Commissioners presented Cooley Law School with this proclamation," said Nussbaumer.
