The Law School sits prominently on Bascom Hill at the heart of the University of Wisconsin campus. The building's wall of windows along Bascom Hill offers beautiful views of the campus and the city and is a striking contemporary statement among the hill's 19th century buildings.
The UW Law School's central location makes it easy for law students to take advantage of the social, cultural, and educational resources of the University.
The Law School is just minutes from the Memorial Union, a focal point of campus social life, on the shore of Lake Mendota. The Union offers food, music, lectures, and theater – all in a beautiful setting.
The Library Mall, the State Historical Society, the Chazen Museum of Art, Music Hall, and many other interesting resources are within minutes of the Law School. For students interested in interdisciplinary programs, the School of Business, Education, Social Work, and many of the University's other schools and colleges are within a short walk from the Law School.
