The Quad at Michigan

Strikingly beautiful, to be sure, yet serene, accessible, and at the heart of campus and town

Law School is located in the serenely beautiful Cook Law Quadrangle, which rests on ten acres located near the center of campus. The cloistered architecture of the School not only allows students to live and study together, but also provides quiet and freedom from interruption for learning and research. The buildings, in late Gothic (or Jacobean) style, were designed to achieve a balance of convenience, utility, and beauty. They include the Lawyers Club, Legal Research Building, and Hutchins Hall. All are accessible to persons with disabilities.

The Lawyers Club

The Lawyers Club provides residential accommodations for about 260 students, a large and inviting lounge, and a recreation area. Meals are served in a spacious dining hall for boarders as well as students and faculty who wish to enjoy a spontaneous meal or a meal plan at the Lawyers' Club. Guest rooms are available for visiting lawyers and guests of the School, its faculty, and students.

The Legal Research Building

The Legal Research Building includes a portion of the Law Library’s collection of research materials and a magnificent reading room with 50-foot ceilings and stained glass windows which can comfortably seat hundreds. The Legal Research Building also contains faculty and administrative offices, study rooms, student organization offices, a student lounge, and a coffee shop. Hutchins Hall contains comfortable lecture and seminar rooms, a moot courtroom, student computer facilities, student lounges and study areas, and faculty and administrative offices. These facilities, as virtually all the Law School’s, offer wireless access.
