Western Michigan University Cooley Law School has announced that it will close its Ann Arbor campus on Dec. 31, 2014.
Starting in January of 2015, students can continue their classes at any of the law school's any other campuses in Lansing, Auburn Hills, Grand Rapids or Tampa Bay, Fla. In August, the law school told students that should the campus close, it would provide early registration at other campuses; a $1,500 cash stipend to help cover costs of attending another campus; a $3,500 stipend for a bar review course for graduates; specialized advising for registration, financial aid, housing and other issues; a possible adjustment to available financial aid and additional consideration to students with special circumstances.
The plan is subject to approval by the American Bar Association and the Higher Learning Commission.
