Getting to the Law School

 
The Grounds

The David A. Harrison III Law Grounds reflect a recent $46 million expansion and renovation project funded entirely by private support from alumni and friends. The Law Grounds feature new classrooms, seminar rooms, and moot courtrooms; comprehensive computer facilities; an expanded library with a three-story reading room; new dining facilities; attractive offices for student organizations; and numerous student lounges. Surrounded by inviting gardens and an elegant, tree-lined lawn, the setting reflects Jefferson’s conviction that locating an intellectual community within a beautiful environment fosters learning and personal growth.
