New Spaces for Michigan Law
Building a Dynamic Future|
Michigan Law is meeting the needs of 21st-century legal education by extending and enhancing the School’s campus with a new Student Commons and Academic Building. With these additions the Law Quad will be greater than the sum of its parts—dynamic, collegial, and infused with the spirit of community that has always been the hallmark of Michigan Law.
The Law School held a Groundbreaking Ceremony on September 11, 2009, during the School's sesquicentennial celebration. Special guests at the ceremony included Chief Justice John G. Roberts, Jr., and University President Mary Sue Coleman. Watch a video of the groundbreaking.
