Joseph E. Keller Hall is an outstanding environment for learning the law. Our building is a 122,500-square-foot complex featuring a dramatic atrium, a variety of classroom and meeting spaces, an expansive law library, and faculty and student lounges.
Spanning the entire length of Keller Hall, Keller Hall's sweeping atrium provides a focal point for law school activity.
Abundant natural light fills the atrium, and polished terrazzo floors, cherry woodwork and sleek iron railings reflect the quality of our program and sense of tradition.
Mathias H. Heck Courtroom
The Mathias H. Heck Courtroom seats 200 and is an ideal site for public lectures and for continuing legal education programs. Selected trial skill courses and portions of legal writing courses use the courtroom as a classroom.
Keller Hall includes four large classrooms furnished with tiered seating and plenty of desk space to write, use a computer and spread our your textbooks.
Each of our large classrooms can accommodate 50 to 100 people.
Five seminar classrooms provide an intimate environment for smaller classes. These classrooms are furnished with moveable desks, allowing the rooms to be reconfigured to meet the teaching style of individual faculty members.
Keller Hall was designed to promote small-group discussions among students and faculty. Comfortable seating areas can be found on all floors of the building, providing a sense of community and collegiality throughout the law school.
