WMU-COOLEY STUDENTS COLLABORATE WITH ATTORNEY GENERAL SCHUETTE TO CREATE MICHIGAN GUIDE TO MILITARY FAMILY LAW
Students from Western Michigan University Cooley Law School recently collaborated with Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette to create the Michigan Guide to Military Family Law, a new resource for Michigan judges and attorneys.
Students helped create a resource that specifically outlines family law issues for members of the military, lawyers, judges and persons who advise military personnel and their families while navigating through complex legal areas. Each student earned publication credits for drafting the guide and gained experience working alongside Schuette and his staff.
Access to the Michigan Guide to Military Family Law is available at http://1.usa.gov/1peaLcD
