Non-Discrimination Policy

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

Policy

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, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, disability, marital status, citizenship, national origin, genetic information, or any other characteristic protected by law. In addition, WMU-Cooley complies with  American Bar Association Standard 205.

WMU-Cooley's Approach to Legal Education

WMU-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, WMU-Cooley is proud of its reputation of offering admission opportunities to a diverse group of applicants. The Law School enters new students three terms each year, in January, May, 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.
