Study Spaces in Suites
The design for the school's modern building manifests a commitment to providing desirable spaces for study and interaction by students who live throughout the metropolitan area. Double- or single-occupancy offices are provided to most second-year students, research assistants and teaching assistants. Most third-year students are assigned carrels or space in Club 3L, a communal area for studying or lounging. Library study spaces, far in excess of the number of first-year students, also are available. 
The second and third-year assigned spaces are located in suites that include faculty offices. Each suite is named after a distinguished former justice of the United States Supreme Court. This innovative building plan fosters student-faculty interaction, the exchange of ideas and general collegiality.
