Non-Discrimination Policy

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


Subject to space limitations, WMU-Cooley Law School offers the opportunity for legal education to all qualified applicants. WMU-Cooley is an equal opportunity employer and abides by all federal and state laws against discrimination. In addition, the Law School abides by American Bar Association Standard 205, which provides, among other things, that "[a] law school shall foster and maintain equality of opportunity for students, faculty, and staff, without discrimination or segregation on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, or disability."

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.
