June 11, 2014 - Cooley Law School’s students, faculty and staff, along with members of the Washtenaw County legal community, volunteered their time to plant flowers at the Avalon Housing project in Ann Arbor, Mich., on Saturday, June 7.

Among the volunteers was Joan Vestrand, associate dean of Cooley’s Ann Arbor campus. “Cooley Law School strongly believes in volunteering in the community,” she noted. “By brightening the area around the apartments with flowers, we hope to show that those in the legal profession care about making a difference in the lives of all individuals in our community.”

Cooley has participated in planting flower gardens at various Avalon projects around Washtenaw County for the past several years.
