The design of Seton Hall Law School's building is open and welcoming, a reflection of the faculty and administration's commitment to students. Students enter the Law School into a monumental black marble plaza. Once inside, a striking five-story, glass-encased atrium warms and illuminates the "urban quad." Offices, classrooms, moot court rooms, and library are inter-connected by balconies overlooking the atrium.
