Allard Hall at the Peter A. Allard School of Law consolidates the law school and associated organizations in a LEED Gold candidate structure that enhances the quality of legal education and the student experience in a setting that takes full advantage of its site.

The building’s program creates flexibility for student participation in a wide variety of learning environments. Teaching strategies and technologies include video conferencing for distance learning, dedicated group study rooms and open casual study space. Lecture room configurations with deep horseshoe seating allows for more interactive participation. The Forum at the building’s core provides visual connection and integration between floors. This multi-purpose space has retractable seating and can be closed from the public corridors for lectures and special events.

An Atrium connects various programs around a sky-lit open stair with student lounge space. A double-height reading room with stunning views is provided in the updated Law Library.
