Founded in 1869, the Notre Dame Law School is the oldest Catholic law school in the country and one of the oldest university law schools in continuous operation. Its faculty and students hold fast to both the American tradition of common law and the Catholic tradition of bringing specific spiritual and moral values to bear upon daily life and legal judgments.
The school’s recently improved facilities include the Eck Hall of Law and Biolchini Hall of Law. Dedicated in 2009, Eck Hall of Law is an 85,000-square-foot building that features cutting-edge technology, the Patrick F. McCartan Courtroom, and offices and classrooms for most faculty and students. Biolchini Hall of Law is the law school’s original building, which, after a comprehensive renovation, houses an expanded Kresge Law Library as well as classrooms and administrative offices. The two buildings are connected by a covered archway that includes a chapel and commons area.
