The move allowed students the opportunity to earn a law degree at any of the school's three Michigan locations.  Cooley Law School opened the third and fourth floors of the Cooley Center on January 31, 2006. The $4.5 million final phase of the Cooley Center consists of three major classrooms, a large assortment of smaller classrooms, the career services office, student organization offices and an adjunct faculty office.
