WMU-Cooley Grand Rapids hosts open dialogue: Equal but Separate


The Black Student Law Association (BLSA) at WMU-Cooley Law School’s Grand Rapids campus hosted an open dialogue titled “Equal but Separate” on Feb. 25. Law students, faculty, and staff participated in a discussion about the differences in race, gender, and other characteristics that create separations among people.

Students shared ideas on actions that can racially unify a campus and encouraged the support of campus diversity. BLSA representatives expressed the desire to make sure all students felt welcome to attend their campus events.

Miller encouraged the students to seek out positions at large law firms in Grand Rapids and to make inroads with the Grand Rapids Bar Association.
