WMU-Cooley Law School’s Grand Rapids campus honored Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., on Monday, Jan. 20, with two showings of the movie Selma followed by a discussion on the topic of King’s work in civil rights.
The event was part of WMU-Cooley’s Equal Access to Justice Day, which suspends classes in observance of MLK Day. Students, faculty and staff devote the day to reflect and attend programs on the role of law and lawyers in protecting the right of everyone and assuring equal access to justice.
