Why Now?

Since planning for the new law school building began nearly a decade ago, the current project represents the culmination of years of discussion and study by leaders of the Law School and the University. While the law tower is an iconic architectural structure on the BU campus, its usability as a modern educational facility has been outmoded by evolving legal education trends. Recognizing that the Law School needs a physical facility that offers the appropriate space and modern amenities to meet the contemporary requirements of legal education, BU has moved forward with this very important project. Students will benefit from additional classrooms, comfortable meeting spaces, and expanded study areas that will enhance both their educational and student life experience.
