Cooley Lansing Campus


Are you ready to fully immerse yourself in the lifestyle of a legal professional? Students at Cooley’s Lansing campus have the unique opportunity to learn the law just steps away from the Michigan Supreme Court, as well as federal and local courts, and numerous law firms, both big and small.

Lansing, Michigan, is where it all started for Cooley Law School in 1972. The Hon. Thomas E. Brennan, along with other Lansing-area lawyers and judges, created a juris doctor curriculum designed to prepare law students for practice through experienced-based teaching. Today, students learn to apply legal theory to situations they may encounter as attorneys.

About the Lansing Campus

The Cooley Center, located at 300 S. Capitol Ave., is situated perfectly in the heart of downtown Lansing, a stone’s throw from the seat of government. In addition to traditional law classrooms, this 10-story brick building houses mock trial courtrooms, legal clinic offices, and the Brennan Law Library. Parking ramps and meters are available near the law school’s campus. You can contact the Lansing campus at (517) 371-5140.
