Retrenchment at Nation's Largest Law School
The Thomas M. Cooley Law School, the nation's largest, is getting smaller. Cooley has four campuses in Michigan and one in Florida. A statement on the Cooley website says -- without providing much detail -- that the law school is retrenching through, among other things, faculty and staff reductions. But Above the Law (and then others) reported on a memo (not on the public portion of the Cooley website) stating that it would not admit new students to its Ann Arbor campus this fall. Current students at the Ann Arbor campus will be able to continue there.
