2-Year Accelerated Schedule

2-Year Accelerated schedule

Attend classes five days per week for two years (24 months). There are no terms off; although, as with all programs at WMU-Cooley, there are term breaks. Students are strongly encouraged to discuss this option with an academic advisor. An admissions representative will also be able to offer an opinion on this program after reviewing your admissions credentials. This schedule allows for elective concentrations.

WMU-Cooley’s Accelerated Program allows students to complete their 90 credit program in only 24 months by attending year-round and earning 15 credits, three semesters a year. This is a rigorous program which is ideal for ambitious students looking to begin their legal careers quickly to maximize their earning potential and minimize the potential debt incurred from living expenses throughout law school.
