WMU-Cooley Law School Orientation

WMU-Cooley Law School Orientation

Getting off to a great start

Orientation is the foundation to your successful time during law school. Make your start reflect how you want to finish. Here are some of the items you will be able to complete now as you start getting ready for your first day in law school. Some will not be able to be completed until just a few weeks or days before the beginning of the term.

About one month before classes start, you will receive an email from the Admissions Office to your personal email that contains instructions on how to retrieve your school username and password to the Cooley Connect portal. From there, you'll have access to your personal profile information and details specific to your account.
