Logo for Thomas M Cooley Law SchoolThis office sponsors a Defenders Clinic whereby our attorneys are assisted by Thomas M. Cooley Law Students. These students assist the attorneys in legal research, interviewing witnesses, summarizing police reports and evidence, and generally assisting the attorneys in case preparation. This has proven beneficial to the student, the attorney, and most importantly the defendant.
