The New East Wing Opens

With construction begun in July 2012 and completed in December 2013, the new wing of Cornell Law School opened in time to host spring 2014 classes. The addition, which provides 23,000 square feet of space, houses three state-of-the-art classrooms and a new formal entrance to Myron Taylor Hall. The first major expansion and renovation of the Law School in 25 years, the new wing is the crowning achievement of Stewart Schwab, the Allan R. Tessler Dean and Professor of Law, who oversaw the project from its inception to its completion. The new wing was designed by Ann Beha Architects and features a breakout lobby with a view of the courtyard and tower through four bay windows.
