Front Entrance and Lobby

First Floor Lobby

Remodeled during summer 2008, the front entrance and lobby area of the Washington College of Law reflect a modern design style providing an open space for socializing at formal receptions and informal conversations. Located off the lobby area are two large classrooms, the Legal Rhetoric Program suite and the Office of Career and Professional Development suite.

Students and visitors to the law school will notice the electronic announcements of upcoming events posted in the lobby. Often a student organization or program office will have display tables in the lobby promoting a fundraiser, upcoming volunteer activity, or educational opportunity. There's always something going on in the lobby–whether it's a quiet conversation between friends, a discussion about the benefits of Mock Trial, or a formal reception at the culmination of a special event.

Above the main section of the lobby is a ceiling light well, allowing natural light to stream into the lobby and the large area of the Pence Law Library which looks into the lobby.
