ABA-Required Information

WMU-Cooley Law School's accrediting agency, the American Bar Association, requires law schools to report certain information annually.  The Law School's primary public report sets forth information as specified in Standard 509 of the ABA's Standards and Rules of Procedure for Approval of Law Schools.  The Law School also reports on the extent to which it offers scholarships that are conditioned upon certain student academic performance.

ABA "Standard 509" Report

Click here to see the Law School's annual "Standard 509" report.. This report highlights key information about the Law School, including tuition and fees, living expenses, GPA and LSAT scores of entering students, grants and scholarships awarded and conditions placed upon scholarships, student body demographics, curriculum, faculty and administrators, attrition and transfer numbers, and bar passage rates. Standard 509 reports, which are filed by all ABA-approved law schools, provide prospective students with valuable comparative data.  We encourage you to read them.  

ABA Conditional Scholarship Retention Data

Interpretation 509-3 to ABA Standard 509 defines a conditional scholarship as follows: "A conditional scholarship is any financial aid award, the retention of which is dependent upon the student maintaining a minimum grade point average or class standing, other than that ordinarily required to remain in good academic standing."  

WMU-Cooley's honors scholarships are not conditional within the meaning of Standard 509.  Rather, unlike at many other law schools, our honors scholarships are continued for the duration of the student's enrollment at the Law School as long as the student is not subject to sanction under the Honor Code or Disciplinary Procedures
