The S.J. Quinney College of Law was built to encourage innovation in legal education, bolster community service and provide students with new opportunities for skills training. More than 50% larger than the original law building, the new six-story structure can accommodate 450 students and be easily reconfigured as needs evolve. The design has many green features, including a solar-panel-shaded, green-roof terrace. The building is targeting LEED Platinum certification.
