Cooley purchases Florida property adjacent to Tampa Bay campus

LANSING, MI--The Thomas M. Cooley Law School today announced the purchase of a second Tampa Bay property following the recent announcement of Cooley's new Tampa Bay campus, at 9445 Camden Field Parkway, in Riverview, Florida, about 15 minutes from downtown Tampa. This second property is a 4.5 acre parcel abutting the east side of the 8.8 acre lot on which Cooley's new Tampa Bay campus is situated. The two properties together provide a large campus setting of 13.3 acres with more than 500 parking places.

"We have exciting, long-range plans for our Tampa Bay campus and now have the facility, space and resources to develop an exceptional legal education environment for our students and faculty," said Jeff Martlew, associate dean of Cooley's Tampa Bay campus.

Cooley's campus facility is a single-floor 130,470 sq. foot property on the south side of Camden Field Parkway, just west of Highway 301 and within sight of I-75. The new addition abuts a large retention pond west of the campus building, and includes two smaller ponds - one with a fountain - east of the building.

Cooley President Don LeDuc said he looks forward to opening Tampa Bay's doors for classes in May 2012, with Jeff Martlew at the helm as its associate dean. ''This purchase completes our Tampa Bay campus and provides an excellent facility in a nice setting with some open space, as well as allowing flexibility for the future," stated LeDuc.
