Silverman Classroom Renovation Project

In May of 2019, Penn Law will undertake an extensive renovation of three classrooms in Silverman Hall (S-240A, 240B, and 245A).

These beautiful rooms will be restored and developed to provide excellent teaching and learning spaces for Penn Law faculty and students.

We will keep the community updated about the project via this site, so please visit often.
