The Law School was designed to make the learning environment more conducive for our students. From the 261-seat Amon G. Carter Lecture Hall to the Dee J. Kelly Law Library reading room, we have created an environment to provide more space for student interaction and learning.
The recent 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. During the building dedication in 2006, the Lecture Hall hosted a presentation from U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy.
Dee J. Kelly Law Library
The first-class renovation to the Dee J. Kelly Law Library offers a comfortable environment where students can concentrate on their studies. The large reading room at the entrance of the library contains numerous desks with four Internet connections per table for quick online research. The new group study rooms or the designated quiet study room accommodate all studying preferences.
We have created numerous areas for individual and group study, as well as informal conversation, throughout the building, in addition to the library. Relax in the large student lounge and visit the bookstore, stocked with coffee, snacks and apparel.
The entire Law School was upgraded in Summer 2014 with numerous new Wi-Fi hotspots, ensuring building-wide coverage. Wireless internet service coverage and density has been doubled across all floors on campus. This wireless upgrade was in response to a need voiced by our student body. New wireless print stations for students have been added at convenient locations throughout the school. All computer labs have been recently upgraded. All students are assigned e-mail addresses, through which professors and deans send assignments and other correspondence. Faculty makes use of the technological advancements in class using monitors and video functions similar to those used in courtrooms.
