FLORIDA A&M UNIVERSITY COLLEGE OF LAW

ORLANDO, FL

The College of Law moved into its newly constructed facility at 201 Beggs Avenue in the spring of 2006. The state-of-the-art facility promotes energy, flexibility, a sound learning environment, and a place of growth and development for faculty and students.

 

The four-story, 160,400 square foot building is conveniently accessible from Interstate 4 with exit and entrance ramps just one block from the College of Law’s front door. Positioned directly across from the Federal Courthouse Building and within blocks of the Orange County Courthouse, law firms, city and county government buildings, students thrive on the learning experiences and opportunities of this facility and its unique downtown location.

 

The building is designed with a multipurpose lobby, which in turn creates a centralized hub that reinforces the grand atrium. This does several things to contribute to the overall theme and organization of the building. It breaks the 160,400 SF into academic wings and gives a sense of personal scale and the ability to easily orient oneself and quickly locate and access the various spaces. The spatial organization of the building is a four story plan with larger, more public spaces on the ground floor, and smaller, more intimate spaces at the upper levels.

 

Ground floor spaces include the previously mentioned grand lobby atrium, law library, the 200-seat moot court room, student services, admissions, facility services and the internship law program. Service access has been carefully sited to be easily available for service vehicles, but predominantly hidden from the view of building users. The upper levels house tiered-classrooms, a computer laboratory, library stacks and reading areas, administrative, faculty and staff offices.

 

Classrooms in the new facility use advanced technology to support learning, including network connections for hard-wired and wireless use by instructors and students. Classrooms will also be used for video-conferencing and broadcasting. The law school courtroom encompasses a hearing room, a jury box, a witness stand and judge’s bench. It also serves as a setting for ceremonial activities and events for the law school.
