(updated August 2018)
In November 2014, Edinburgh Law School launched one of the most ambitious projects ever seen in its 300-year history, the refurbishment of Old College.
The return to Old College was scheduled for August 2018. Due to delays in construction, the relocation is now scheduled for the end of semester 1 of the 2018-19 academic year.
The Old College Refurbishment Project is set to transform the Law School’s premises at Old College into a 21st century home for the School, whilst celebrating, and preserving the heritage and history of Old College.
The design reflects the needs of a modern-day university and will provide world-class study and research spaces, creating an enhanced sense of community though dedicated social spaces located at the heart of the School.
The New Law Library
The new Law Library will feature this spectacular Senate Room with double height flooring, a study mezzanine level, quiet study space and computer desks.
The newly refurbished Law School will also provide a range of flexible teaching spaces with integrated digital learning technology.
Please note that classes will take place in a range of buildings in the University's central campus.
At the centre of the building on the first floor, a new social hub and cafe will connect the entire length of the north side of the School.
