The Wasserstein Hall, Caspersen Student Center, Clinical Wing comprises approximately 250,000 square feet on the corner of Everett Street and Massachusetts Avenue. WCC was built to transform student life and learning at Harvard Law School, to improve the teaching environment, provide new spaces for student activities, strengthen the learning community, and provide an attractive northern gateway to the Law School and to the Harvard University community.
WCC is a model of “green” building, and is part of the Law School’s and Harvard’s commitment to reducing our environmental impact and creating healthy buildings in which our community can work and learn. Built according to green building principles, it is expected to achieve LEED-NC (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design – New Construction) Gold certification, the United States Green Building Council (USGBC’s) ranking system for green building design excellence.
The new complex houses three centers:
Wasserstein Hall, bordering Massachusetts Avenue, features a range of classrooms and administrative offices such as Dean of Students, OPIA, Graduate Program and International Legal Studies, Student Financial Services, Registrar, IT/Media Services, and the Mail Center.
The Caspersen Student Center, is a central gathering place for students and serves as a home for student organizations, journals, and social activities. The dining hall, pub grille, and Haas Lounge can be found in this area.
The Clinical Wing, on the Everett Street side of the site, houses the Law School's expanding clinical programs; the educational ground where theory and practice meet.
