Please note that we are well into the summer construction season here at the School of Law!
The floors have been cut and trenched to accomodate new power and audio visual connections in ten of the classrooms, including the four seminar rooms.
Major construction on the floors will pause briefly for four days to accomodate graduation activities (Thursday May 16 through Sunday May 19) and then resume again on Monday May 20 when concrete will be poured into the trenches.
Watch this site for more information on the classroom project!
