The New University of Denver College of Law

 This fall, students at the University of Denver College of Law went back to school in style—with a 243,000 square-foot, $63.5 million-dollar facility to greet them. The new law building is four stories and houses 10 classrooms, five seminar rooms, one 200-seat forum, one 120-seat moot court room, a three-story law library and one full-service cafe.

building’s west entrance. The forum is patterned after the Kennedy Government Center at Harvard University.
Above: Students study and relax in the forum area near the west entrance. The forum features a 30-ft. ceiling and two grand staircases, with balconies with couches, tables and chairs and is designed to seat more than 200.
Above: Each “smart” classroom at the school is equipped with video recording capabilities, a data port for every student, monitors and DVD/VCR equipment.
Above: The 145-foot brick clocktower
features a 38,000-pound copper-clad spire and a
three-sided, stained-glass clock that is backlit at night and visible from most campus locations.
