Through a series of programming sessions, the architects engaged\nthe law school in a dialogue to gain an understanding of the building and\neducational program components.

We also\ndiscussed the law school\u2019s relationship to the university community\u2019s campus\ngoals with the university architect and administrators to understand how the\nproject could enhance these goals.

Continuing through the lobby you arrive at the administrative suite,\nwith the Dean\u2019s office, admissions, development, career counseling, and support\nspaces. The building\u2019s second floor provides a variety of classrooms and\nseminar spaces, as well as faculty offices, soft seating and tables for student\nstudy, and a caf\u00e9. The third floor provides a divisible multi-functional\nclassroom suitable for both instruction and special events.
