THE GOLD STANDARD From the beginning of the planning process, leaders of Michigan Law School sought ways to make the new South Hall academic building a sustainable structure. That effort has paid off with the newly awarded LEED
Gold certification rating.
The building's LEED score of 44 placed it solidly in the Gold category, which ranges from 39 to 51 points. LEED, or the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is a rating system designed by the U.S. Green Building Council
to evaluate the sustainability features of structures. South Hall opened to the public in January 2012.
