Designed by Robert A.M. Stern, the 250,000-square-foot building includes an academic wing, a student center and a clinical wing. The building offers a variety of interactive spaces for student organizations, journals and clinics.
A second-floor interior in Wasserstein Hall faces the courtyard garden. Wasserstein Hall, the academic wing, gives the law school state-of-the-art classrooms designed to maximize discussion, teamwork and creativity.
Because legal education demands constant and rigorous discussion and exchange, because legal imagination springs from bridging theory and practice, and because Harvard Law School recruits and develops superb students from all over the world to pursue lives of leadership, the school commissioned the Wasserstein Hall, Caspersen Student Center, and Clinical Wing building. The new building opened on Jan. 3, 2012.
