About the Building

The Vanderbilt Law School building is one of the most pleasant, comfortable and well-designed law school facilities in the nation. The building's commodious design reflects the tradition, the character and the stature of Vanderbilt University Law School. Ample classrooms, wide corridors, pleasant offices, natural light, a central courtyard and numerous study areas foster the teaching, research, and intellectual and social interactions that are the core of the Vanderbilt Law School experience.

Building Hours

The law school's doors are open Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. For security reasons, building access during evenings, weekends and holidays is limited to law faculty, students, staff and authorized library patrons, and a valid student, faculty or staff ID is required to enter the building.

Campus and Law School Visitors

Vanderbilt University deeply values its neighbors, community partners and visitors that make our community so vibrant. However, as part of our comprehensive efforts to limit the spread of COVID-19 at Vanderbilt, throughout the city of Nashville and beyond as much as possible, we have made the difficult decision to limit the presence of visitors on campus for the fall 2020 semester, and to impose certain heightened expectations for those visitors who are permitted.

In an effort to de-densify our public spaces, individuals including prospective students, faculty, staff and postdoctoral fellows, non-Vanderbilt interns and observers, recruiters and family members of students, faculty and staff—among others—will regrettably not be permitted in campus buildings until further notice, unless specific permission has been granted in advance by the appropriate university office, dean or vice chancellor.
