"WMU-Cooley's International Programs Office changed for me what a law school experience really means in today's world. What I thought law school looked like when I first started and what I saw in Toronto and Oxford changed my perspective. The books are still stacked high, but now so is my sense of a global legal education." Charles Hickman, WMU-Cooley student, 2017 Toronto and Oxford Programs
