WMU-Cooley Law School Kalamazoo Location

New location to learn the law

Take advantage of all Western Michigan University has to offer, from great facilities to sports, music, and campus activities.

Expanded Offerings Planned for September 2017

Legal education now got more convenient. Begin classes on Western Michigan University's main campus in Kalamazoo, then transition to the WMU-Cooley campus of your choice in Grand Rapids, Lansing, or Auburn Hills, Michigan, or Tampa Bay, Florida. Take advantage of a top public research university and all it has to offer – great facilities, libraries, music, sports, student recreation, and campus activities.

Expanding beyond 15 credits at WMU's home campus

WMU-Cooley will offer 15 credits at its WMU-Kalamazoo location beginning Fall 2017.

WMU-Cooley is seeking approval from its accrediting bodies [American Bar Association (ABA) and the Higher Learning Commission (HLC)] to expand its program at the Kalamazoo location to 60 credits beginning Fall 2017.

The American Bar Association has already conducted a site evaluation of the Kalamazoo location and issued a report.

If the ABA approval is received without HLC approval in time for Fall 2017, the law school will expand its program to 44 credit hours.

All applicants selecting the Kalamazoo location will be eligible for financial aid. A separate request to the Department of Education is underway to offer financial aid for the full 60 credit-hour program.

We will keep applicants informed about the status of the program here and by email.
