Letter from the Editor-in-Chief
The Western Michigan University Thomas M. Cooley Law Review is an organization dedicated to advancing intellectual and practical discussions about the state of the law, both modern and historical. For over four decades, this publication has helped shape the legal landscape, by and large due to its members’ diligence and commitment to excellence. Each member of the Law Review is an incredibly successful law student, and in turn makes each publication and symposium a resounding success.
Nothing that this publication does would be possible without the guidance of Professor Mark Cooney, the Law Review’s faculty advisor. Professor Cooney, along with all of the research and writing professors at the Western Michigan University Thomas M. Cooley Law School, has prepared each student to be successful legal writers. Professor Cooney, however, goes above and beyond to support the members of the Law Review in becoming the greatest version of themselves that they can be.
On a personal note, I am humbled to be in the position that I am, working with a staff, Board of Editors, and faculty advisor who are all so committed to the Law Review, so talented in the work they do, and so tireless in their pursuit of excellence. I invite every reader to take the time to review the names of the law students who make up our staff, as they will undoubtedly grow to become our generation’s next great legal minds.
