Career and professional development

WMU-Cooley Law School has for decades been a national leader in preparing students to become outstanding practitioners. Our curriculum stresses not just the law but how to practice it well.  Taught by a faculty of experts in law practice, our students graduate with skills needed to be capable lawyers from the start of their careers.

Mentoring Needs

Our WMU-Cooley law students need mentors, now especially. We encourage you to sign up to be a supervisor to a WMU-Cooley student. Not only will you be helping someone in need during the COVID-19 pandemic, you will be mentoring and guiding a law student from the WMU-Cooley family. Sign up with the Career and Professional Development Office at [email protected]. Please leave your contact information.
