A Culture of Giving

WMU-Cooley is proud to be an education feature on the PBS award-winning program, Behind The Scenes With Lawrence Fishburne. Special thanks to our graduates Aaron Burrell and Sarah Ostahowski, and President and Dean James McGrath, for sharing their insights on the importance of access to justice in the legal profession.
