Best Choice Schools, The 50 Most Impressive Law School Buildings in the World:

DurhamFrom stunning examples of Gothic revival to Brutalism’s giant box-like constructions, the world’s most impressive law school buildings span decades and even centuries. With modern marvels like Frank Gehry’s Loyola Law campus and the new University of Sydney Faculty of Law building, and traditional structures like Yale Law’s Sterling Law Building, these architectural giants were chosen for their ingenuity, aesthetic beauty, and commitment to creating an environment that honors the history and study of law. Many of these buildings house some of the world’s most prestigious and selective law programs, and a number of them set a precedent for green building standards and solutions.

Here are the Top 10:

  1. Durham Law School (Durham, UK)
  2. University of Northumbria School of Law (Newcastle upon Tyne, UK)
  3. Thomas Jefferson School of Law (San Diego, California, USA)
  4. Southwestern Law School (Los Angeles, California, USA)
  5. University of Leeds School of Law (Leeds, UK)
  6. Arizona State University Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law (Tempe, Arizona, USA)
  7. William and Mary Law School (Williamsburg, Virginia, USA)

Also worth noting--this is "list" appeared in 2014...our building (which is clearly #1--:), opened in 2016....why it is reappearing today is a bit weird. Another list, appearing the last couple of days, of the most "fun" schools is also a rerun list from 2014...SLOW news day i guess...

Some in the top 10 were unremarkable. Not sure what criteria they used.

Is it appropriate to list TJSL when they soft-defaulted on their construction bonds and ended up selling the building to their creditor(s)?

I'm just astounded that people have time to do things like this.
