Improvements to the law school's facilities continue this summer with the primary focus being on the hallways on the second and third floors. They are being renovated to "link" the work previously completed on the first floor, the Rotunda and the northern end of the building, aesthetically connecting the old with the new. Work is scheduled to be completed in early August.
