LANSING --There is just no joy for a dozen Thomas M Cooley Law School graduates who applied what they learned in school to sue their Alma Mater for what they claimed were false promises.
They said they were misled by the employment statistics published by the school that suggested that many of their graduates had gone on to successful careers. They have gotten jobs, but not necessarily as lawyers.
The Grads wanted tuition refunds. First a federal judge and now an appellate panel have told them that consumer protection laws do not apply.
Now they won’t get their tuition back and they have lost their first 2 cases.
Stories about the suits haven’t helped the schools image. They have just recently agreed to affiliate with Western Michigan University.
