LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Thomas M. Cooley Law School is cutting faculty and staff positions at its Michigan campuses.

Cooley associate dean James Robb this week confirmed the cuts to MLive.com and WLNS-TV.

Robb says Cooley is making the cuts to “right-size the organization” to match enrollment. He didn’t say how many faculty members and staff had been let go.

According to Robb, the employees involved are being offered severance packages.

The confirmation of the cuts comes as the school announced it is formally adding to its name an affiliation with Western Michigan University. Cooley’s campuses in Lansing, Grand Rapids, Auburn Hills and Ann Arbor are being branded with the WMU name.
