The lifelike sculpture was created by Grand Rapids sculptor and artist Matt Large.
The Thomas M. Cooley Law School was founded in 1972 by a group of lawyers and judges led by then-Chief Justice of the Michigan Supreme Court Thomas Brennan.
"The school was named for Thomas McIntyre Cooley, Michigan’s greatest jurist, a man whose work in the mid-1800s as Justice of the Michigan Supreme Court and as a legal scholar is still cited today," said Don LeDuc, Cooley Law School president and dean, during the unveiling.
"The dedication of this sculpture is our way of honoring our namesake and providing our faculty, staff and students with a constant reminder of the school’s guiding principles."
