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.
We are pleased to announce that we are scheduled to return to Old College in 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, computer desks and an archive room built around the original octagonal design of the building.
The newly refurbished Law School will also provide a range of flexible teaching spaces with integrated digital learning technology and adjustable walls allowing the rooms to be extended when required.
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.
