WMU-Cooley Lansing Campus

WMU-Cooley Law School Lansing Campus

Dynamic Campus in the Center of State Courts

The WMU-Cooley Lansing campus sits in the midst of downtown in Michigan's capital city. Students attend class in the Cooley Center, a dramatic 10-story building just steps from the Michigan Supreme Court, Court of Appeals, local courts, and numerous law firms, both big and small. In addition to regular and distance education classrooms, the building houses moot court and mock trial courtrooms, the law school bookstore, the Sixty Plus Inc Elderlaw Clinic, the Academic Resource Center, faculty offices, and a welcoming lobby area where law-related events of interest are often held. The Lansing campus also includes the nearby 60,000-square-foot Brennan Law Library and the adjacent 64,000-square-foot Center for Research and Study.

Lansing Area: Hometown Feel, Lively Performing Arts, Big 10 Sports

Although Lansing is the seat of state government, it retains a small-town atmosphere with a cost-of-living index below the national average. A variety of housing options are available both in the downtown area as well as just a short drive or bus ride away, and natural areas and lakes abound. The city is home to the minor league baseball team, The Lugnuts, who play in Cooley Law School Stadium less than a mile from campus. For those wishing to take in Big 10 sports and internationally acclaimed entertainment choices, Michigan State University sits less than 10 minutes away.
