The Law School sits prominently on Bascom Hill
at the heart of the University of Wisconsin campus. The building's
wall of windows along Bascom Hill offers beautiful views of the
campus and the city and is a striking contemporary statement
among the hill's 19th century buildings.
UW Law School's central location makes it easy for law students
to take advantage of the social, cultural,
resources of the University.
The Law School is just minutes from
the Memorial Union, a focal point of campus social life, on the
shore of Lake Mendota. The Union offers food, music, lectures,
and theater – all in a beautiful setting.
The Library Mall,
the State Historical Society, the Chazen Museum of Art, Music
Hall, and many other interesting resources are within minutes
of the Law School. For students interested in interdisciplinary
programs, the School of Business, Education, Social Work, and
many of the University's other schools and colleges are
within a short walk from the Law School.
