The law school's new academic and administrative building, South Hall (701 S. State St.) is nearly complete, and several administrative units are in the process of moving in. Because I have friends in high places, I went to visit a friend who is in Admissions and got to tour (part of) the new building. It definitely has the new car smell and looks great. The classic Gothic exterior belies the classy modern hallways and offices - contemporary without being sterile, probably a result of the great lighting. Law school classes will start meeting in South Hall next term.
