The College of Law moved into its newly constructed facility at 201 Beggs Avenue in the spring of 2006. The new state-of-the-art facility promotes energy, flexibility, a sound learning environment, and a place of growth and development for faculty and students. 

The four-story, 160,400 square foot building is conveniently accessible from Interstate 4 with exit and entrance ramps just one block from the College of Law’s front door. Positioned directly across from the Federal Courthouse Building and within blocks of the Orange County Courthouse, law firms, city and county government buildings, students thrive on the learning experiences and opportunities of this facility and its unique downtown location. 

The facility houses a law library, classrooms, study rooms, faculty and administrative offices, and an area dealing with student affairs, including admissions, financial aid, the registrar, alumni affairs and career development and placement. The facility also houses trial practice and moot court rooms, space for student organizations and meetings, and space allocated for students to participate in the  hands-on clinical program. 

Classrooms in the new facility use advanced technology to support learning, including network connections for hard-wired and wireless use by instructors and students. Classrooms will also be used for videoconferencing and broadcasting. The law school courtroom encompasses a hearing room, a jury box, a witness stand and judge’s bench. It also serves as a setting for ceremonial activities and events for the law school.
