Cooley Law students participate in unique Supreme Court mock trial

On June 2, four WMU-Cooley Law School LL.M. students participated in a mock trial at the Hall of Justice's Supreme Court courtroom in Lansing, Michigan. The students are studying the practice of homeland and national security law and went before seven Michigan judges. The 90-minute trial was part of the day-long legal training for Michigan judges and court administrators.

"This is believed to be the first event of this type in the U.S.," said Mike McDaniel, WMU Cooley Law School professor and director of homeland security law programs. "Our students were well-prepared, polished and professional. They added substantially to the quality of the training as the judges could observe, or participate in, how issues like quarantine and involuntary blood draws might play out in their courtrooms."
