Which Law Schools Need New Facilities?

Postby PDaddy » Fri Sep 16, 2011 6:35 pm

I vote for Boston-U, Howard, USD, Northwestern, and USC. As for the last two, other schools of their caliber look way better. NYU could also use changes, even though it's far from ugly. Are they really going to let Fordham one-up them?

What's wrong with Northwestern? The classrooms are comfortable and modern for the most part, and the atrium is pretty. Plus, the view from the library can't be beat...

BU is currently building a brand new classroom building next to the tower and renovating the entire tower from within. NYU has a very new suplemental building right across the street. Unless you mean tearing down everything old, im not sure why NYU would need new facilities if they already have a new classroom building right across the street.

It'd be cool if they wired up Levy-Mayer without changing the gothic feel, so it could be used more regularly. Even the little classrooms are neat.

A better topic would be, "Most Beautiful Law School?" Now, that is worth discussing!

As much as I loved the school in my visit, Fordham's law school was kinda meh. Same with BU's tower of doom; I feel like that's where the evil corporation in a crime thriller would be located, not a T25 law school.

I mean, Michigan and Duke have new law buildings, but their old buildings dated from the 30's and 60's, respectively. Northwestern's building was built in the mid 80's, and they've got plenty of room to grow into it (it's a mid-rise office building).

What they do need is better lighting in the library (desperately). Levy-Mayer can't be touched that much because of its historic nature, but the classrooms in McCormick were recently renovated. The Levy-Mayer basement is under renovation right now too.

This is true. I had CLR in there though, and it was fine for one class (I mean, charge up beforehand), but those seats are mad uncomfortable.

Don't know about alcoholic though. Looks like Pellegrino to me.

Boston University needs new everything.

The classrooms suck.
The chairs suck.
The library is archaic (though still better than fordham's)
The tower is ugly.
The walls are made of concrete-faux-wood.
The coffee sucks.

It is too tall to be a prison, yet too inefficient to be from Soviet Russia.

UNC Law is literally falling apart. They should have a new facility soon though.

The BU law tower looks like the House of Soviets:

USC desperately needs a new facade on the law building. It's just flat out ugly, especially compared to the rest of the campus.

I agree with this. The law building is easily the ugliest building on campus.

Northwestern is among the most beautiful law schools in the country for both setting & building.

I recently took a tour at BU Law and was extremely disappointed. I can't see myself spending 3 years in that tower, even with a full ride. It's such a shame because the rest of the school is much nicer and their academics are great.
