A three-story addition to the Superior Street side of the Law School campus was completed in the spring of 2015. The addition includes David and Libby Savner Hall, a classroom that incorporates state-of-the art technology to facilitate collaboration and the use of new instructional modalities, as well as a series of group study rooms, additional student study spaces, and an expanded cafe.

“We wanted the design and feel of the new classroom and study spaces to inspire in our students the professionalism for which we are known,” said Dean Daniel B. Rodriguez.

The Law School and University Facilities Management teams partnered with architects from Holabird & Root, the firm that designed the Arthur Rubloff building, to create the addition.
