C|M|LAW is housed in a spacious modern facility located on the edge of downtown Cleveland which gives our students easy access to the robust Cleveland legal community.  At the core of our building is a large atrium that serves as a space for students to gather and study.  The atrium is surrounded by classrooms that are replete with technology to enable our students to benefit from multimedia learning.  Faculty offices also surround the atrium to facilitate interaction among students and faculty.  Our Moot Court Room is a large venue where numerous events are held for students, lawyers and the general public throughout the year.  C|M|LAW also has a trial courtroom that simulates the facilities of a federal courtroom, complete with judge's chambers and a jury deliberation room.  Student use this space to practice their lawyering skills in a realistic environment.  A separate suite of offices houses our legal writing professors and a modern clinical space contains the offices of our clinical law professors as well as office space for students taking part in our extensive legal clinic program.  On the lower level of the law school, our students enjoy their own student lounge which serves as additional study space as well as being a place to eat and socialize.  Fine art is hung throughout the building as a result of the law school's initiative to collect art to elevate the atmosphere of the institution and add to its architectural appeal.

Our law library is connected to the law school and shares the inspirational architectural of the main law building.  The entrance to the library is an airy multi-level atrium surrounded by art installations.  At over 84,000 square feet, it is the largest law library in Ohio and thirteenth among academic law libraries in the country.  Its collection is composed of more than a half million volumes.  The C|M|LAW Library's superior research facility offers students access to electronic research services, a 50-seat computer lab, group study rooms, a research instruction room and a study center dedicated to Ohio legal materials. The law school’s future attorneys may study and read at leisure in the light-filled atrium or in one of the 200 carrels with built-in power and wireless access for laptop computers.
