Non-Discrimination Policy

Cooley Law School is committed to a fair and objective admissions policy and hiring practice.


The Law School complies with all federal and state laws relating to equal opportunity employment and makes all employment and admission decisions without regard to discrimination or segregation on the basis of race, color, ethnicity, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, disability, marital status, pregnancy status, citizenship, national origin, genetic information, military status, or any other characteristic protected by law. Cooley complies with American Bar Association Standard 205.

Cooley's Approach to Legal Education

Cooley stands firm in its belief that the study of law should not be an esoteric pursuit and that the practice of law should not be an elitist profession. The School was founded on the premises that an individual's formal knowledge of the law is beneficial to society as a whole and that the strength of a democracy depends upon the ability of people to understand their laws. Toward that end, Cooley is proud of its reputation of offering admission opportunities to a diverse group of applicants. The Law School enters new students two terms each year, in January and September, and operates on a "rolling admissions" system, which means applications are processed at the time they are received. When all required materials are received by the Admissions Office, a decision is made and the applicant is informed of his or her admission status.
