Student Life Center & Experiential Learning Hub
In 2019, UF Law renovated the entire second floor and a section of the first floor of Bruton-Geer Hall. The second floor, now Student Life Center, houses the Office of Career and Professional Development, a news nook, ample study and collaboration space for students, reservable conference rooms of varying sizes, and the Experiential Learning Hub that connects to offices on the first floor.
Bailey Event Space
In 2020, UF Law transformed its Bailey Courtroom into a multifunctional space that operates as both a high-tech classroom and an advanced event venue. An entire wall of digital screens presents an opportunity for immersive technology, and another wall of folding doors fully opens to a spacious deck that offers plenty of sunny and shaded areas for event flow – and a great place for law students to study.
In 2017, UF Law renovated this Commons space to increase food and beverage offerings with a Starbucks and Chompit, expand study areas, implement new technology and upgrade furniture, which now houses charging stations and USB ports.
Martin H. Levin Advocacy Center
The center is named in honor of Martin H. Levin (JD 88), who is the son and former colleague of Pensacola attorney and college namesake Fredric G. Levin (JD 61). Facilities such as these provide students a sophisticated learning space and place the Levin College of Law at the forefront of major law colleges.
Lawton Chiles Legal Information Center
The Lawton Chiles Legal Information Center is one of the largest law libraries in the Southeast and among the top 20 law libraries in the country. Its three floors are filled with books, articles, research and journals on a variety of law topics. The center is named in honor of Lawton Chiles (JD 55), who was a U.S. Senator and governor of Florida. The Lawton Chiles Legal Information Center prides itself on its wide collection of law articles, experienced library faculty and comfortable ambiance.
Spessard L. Holland Law Center
Holland Hall was built in response to the influx of post-World War II baby boomers at the urging of Dean Frank E. Maloney who anticipated an increase in enrollment and campaigned for the new building. The building’s three stories contain faculty offices in addition to administrative ones such as the dean’s suite, development and student affairs and faculty support. The center is named in honor of Spessard L. Holland, who served as governor of Florida and as a U.S. senator. He graduated from UF Law in 1916.
Chesterfield Smith Ceremonial Classroom
The Chesterfield Smith Ceremonial Classroom is the most frequently used classroom at the law school. Lecture halls include classroom inputs for laptops, DVD, projectors and audio. Recording and streaming services are also available as needed. The classroom is named in honor of Chesterfield Smith, a UF Law graduate who presided over the American Bar Association during the Watergate Scandal. His famous quote, “No man is above the law,” is displayed in large metallic letters in the foyer before entering the classroom.
The half-mile path, which circles the UF Law campus, gives students, faculty and staff access to a conveniently located trail, making it a little easier to stay in shape or just get the blood moving in between classes.
Areas around the law school are populated with chatting students during mealtimes as well as faculty walking to and from buildings with their morning cups of coffee.
Other Campus Facilities:
UF Law students have access to a full range of on-campus recreation through the University of Florida’s Department of Recreational Sports. These locations include Southwest Recreation Center, Student Recreation & Fitness Center, Center for Outdoor Recreation and Education (CORE), and Lake Wauburg.
