CROWN QUAD MODERNIZATION

A state-of-the-art facility befitting of a top-tier law school

MKThink Future Forward Plan's called for the renovation of the 1970’s Crown Building into a vibrant, state of the art center of learning and research and interaction on campus befitting the Law School’s world-class reputation. Completed during 10-week summer breaks, the modernized Crown Quad features 16 classrooms, legal clinics, and a moot courtroom. MKThink transformed the 35,000-SF Law Library from one dominated by the storage of books into one optimized for research, group, and independent study. The Law Library is now considered one of best places to study on campus; usage has increased from 60 students per day to 1000.
