Faculty offices will extend over two floors, while the modern law library will serve as a hub of student engagement and activity. It will occupy the top two floors with a significantly reduced number of stacks and with plenty of other spaces and seating areas for individual and group study.
On the top floor, there will be a reading room which will double as quiet space for student reading and a signature event space. The new building will also have rooms and spaces for IT services, journals, student organizations, the Blakely Advocacy Institute, Career Development, Student Services, Graduate and Global Programs, Admissions and Law Center Leadership.
Official fundraising for the new building started with the “More Than Bricks” campaign, in which alumni and friends raised an initial $10 million toward construction of a new building, a goal that was reached in January 2019. In August of 2019, the Law Center secured additional funding from University of Houston System Board of Regents and Texas Legislature. Also in 2019, The John M. O’Quinn Foundation made the largest gift in the Law Center’s history to name the new Law Center building.
