Quinnipiac's stunning new School of Law Center has opened on the University's North Haven Campus, the dynamic center for graduate study at Quinnipiac.
With architecture that is both boldly inspiring and thoughtfully intuitive, the new School of Law Center has been designed to anticipate the needs of today's law students with a spirit that is decidedly collaborative, interdisciplinary, and practical. From the impressive two-tiered Courtroom to the soaring two-story Library Atrium, the new School of Law Center asserts its presence with style, with sophisticated technology and an emphasis on community throughout.
Striking and modern, the new School of Law Center is welcoming, too--with generous use of curved lines and natural light, a connection to the outdoors, and environments that encourage all aspects of law school life, from professional gatherings to small group collaborations, from a busy legal clinic to quiet spaces for study and reflection.
The move to the North Haven Campus is a strategic one, bringing the School of Law together with other graduate programs on a common campus, creating an exceptional environment for advanced professional study along with rich opportunities for interdisciplinary learning with the other graduate disciplines that call the campus home, including the university's Frank H. Netter MD School of Medicine and graduate programs in social work as well as in the Schools of Health Sciences, Nursing, and Education.
