Every detail of our expansion was designed to make the learning environment more conducive for you. From the 261-seat Amon G. Carter Lecture Hall to the Dee J. Kelly Law Library reading room, we ahve created an environment to provide more space for student interaction and learning.
The expansion of the second and third floors added 40,000 square feet to create several seminar and conference rooms, four 100-seat classrooms, a conference center, and the Amon G. Carter Lecture Hall. The Lecture Hall serves as a spacious hall for guest speakers at the School of Law. During the building dedication, the Lecture Hall hosted a presentation from United States Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy.
We have created numerous areas for individual and group study. On the second floor, you’ll find a large student lounge, a conveniently located computer lab, and expanded bookstore. Offices were also created for our active student life groups, such at the Student Bar Association and the Law Review.
