Western Michigan University Cooley Law School’s Tampa Bay campus participated in the United School Employees of Pasco’s (USEP) annual "Rep Rally” at the Hilton Garden Inn in Odessa, Florida, an event designed to update USEP building representatives on relevant topics for the 2017–2018 school year.
The Aug. 1 event provided opportunities for USEP’s building representatives to be updated on contract bargaining and to have lunch with the school board members and Superintendent Kurt Browning.
In addition to highlighting WMU-Cooley Law School’s commitment as a resource to local educators, law school leaders were able to share information about the school’s daytime, evening and weekend program offerings available to educators interested in pursuing a law degree.
"It was a joy to share all the options that WMU-Cooley has to offer,” said Renalia DuBose, WMU-Cooley Law School professor and retired assistant superintendent of administration for Pasco County Public Schools. “As a former high school teacher, I believe that educators are excellent law school students because educators must constantly read, study and comprehend in order to be effective teachers."
