BOLD AMBITIONS
Three Tributes:
The Giants, in Retrospect
The Law School has received an anonymous lead gift of $10 million toward the construction of a new building to replace Pepper Hall, the administrative heart of Penn Law. School officials envision that the new building will be designed to promote interaction, collaboration and integration of knowledge in keeping with Penn Law’s cross-disciplinary mission. With the new building, the Law School plans to accommodate faculty expansion and address the growing demands of the academic program. Accordingly, the plan calls for:
• a minimum of 12 additional faculty offices, situated as close as possible to the majority of existing faculty offices;
• new administrative offices, including the Dean’s Suite; • an auditorium with the capacity to hold 250 people and be used for smaller lectures and classes;
• additional spaces for academic programs, possibly including academic centers and one or more student journal offices;
• flexible common spaces and informal meeting areas for interchange, dialogue, and discussion among students and faculty.
Estimated start date is spring 2010. The project would take approximately 18 months.
