Summary: The school of law at the University of North Carolina is still looking for additional space for its law school to accommodate the changing legal landscape. 

After legislative appropriation for a new building at Carolina North was removed six years ago, the UNC School of Law is still asking for larger space, according to The Daily Tar Heel.


The Carolina North project was going to be a satellite campus some two miles north of the main campus at UNC. The relocation plan is still on hold right now.

Jack Boger, the dean of the law school, said that the school is still at the top of the construction priority list for the University.

“I was told we are not going to be confident any more, because the legislature is currently interested in innovation projects as the top priority more than construction,” said Boger.

Paul Rollins, the law school’s associate dean for student affairs, said that the school needs to find ways to house smaller classes instead of large lectures.

“We also have significantly more student organizations and legal journals,” Rollins said. “Those groups need space to meet for activities and projects.”

During the summer months, the law school invested in a renovation project of a courtroom that was 40 years old and did not comply with modern court procedures.

Mark Weisburd, a law school professor, said that the school needs more space if enrollment remains consistent.

“I am uneasy about moving to Carolina North because I fear that the result will be a reduction in the interaction between the School of Law and the rest of the University,” Weisburd said in an email.

Boger also said, “We will make do in the space we have, and our faculty, students and staff have been very cooperative. But we very much need a 21st century space in which to teach and do our research.”
