OU Cooley Announce Satellite
“We are absolutely thrilled to be working with Oakland’s faculty and administration on programs that will benefit both institutions, including offering joint degree programs for Cooley and OU students,” said John Nussbaumer, associate dean of faculty at Cooley Law School.
Key benefits of the satellite campus include offering the first two years of Cooley’s standard part-time, 36-month curriculum at OU.
A night section of these courses will begin in May, a morning section will begin in September and an afternoon section will begin in January 2004. All 60-course credits may be taken during the section most convenient to the students.
“We are pleased that our relationship with Cooley Law School continues to grow, enabling us to offer their fine curriculum to students in our area,” said Virinder Moudgil, interim vice president for academic affairs and provost at Oakland University.
All classes at OU will be taught by full-time tenured or tenure-track Cooley faculty and Cooley will provide a complete core collection law library that will be open to OU students and faculty, along with full-time professional law librarians and staff.
In addition, Cooely will contribute funding toward any needed building renovations, with a percentage of the tuition paid by Cooley students going to Oakland’s academic budget.
