June 7, 2013 – Cooley Law School’s annual spring charity fundraising event raised $5,200 for the Friends of Macomb County Veterans Treatment Court. The event, which featured dinner, music, live comedy and a silent auction, was held on Sunday, June 2 at Cooley’s Auburn Hills campus.

The Macomb County Veterans Treatment Court provides alternatives for veterans accused of certain crimes because of issues related to their military service, such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. The alternative court focuses on recovery issues and adherence to law-abiding behavior by offering veterans legal assistance, mentoring services and mental health and substance abuse treatment. Crimes such as child abuse, rape and murder are not covered by the program.
