Saint Louis University School of Law

St. Louis, MO

Lawrence Group’s design of the new Joe & Loretta Scott Hall transformed a nondescript 1960s building into a contemporary, state-of-the art landmark for Saint Louis University’s School of Law.

Strategically located adjacent to the civil courts building in downtown St. Louis, the new building takes advantage of the interaction between the law school and the downtown community including a pavilion and outdoor terrace added to the top floor with views of the Gateway Arch and the courts building entrance. New distinctive windows and dramatic lighting down the center and across the top of the building create a dynamic façade and an inviting gathering space at the central staircases.

The 260,000-square foot facility also houses a 200-seat courtroom, classrooms, common areas, a two-floor library, consultant rooms for clients, restaurant and outdoor cafe. Generous space is offered for individual and group study.
