Long-time Partners Bring Law School Vision to Life

The structural features of Marquette University’s Law School, Eckstein Hall, were designed to both blend with the existing university aesthetic style and bring a modern touch to campus.

The brick pattern used matches the distinctive “Collegiate Gothic” style that separates Marquette University’s campus from the surrounding community. Constructed in a pie shape, with distinctive sweeping glass curve, the eye-catching glass and steel design faces two major interstates.

Built with sustainable construction practices, the LEED Silver building interior mirrors the exquisite nature of the exterior design, with a four-story naturally lit atrium that offers a signature open look  and serves as a gathering space for events and lectures.

The four-story building, which was constructed on a vacant site on the Marquette University campus, includes convenient features such as:
  • two courtrooms,
  • classrooms,
  • faculty offices,
  • library space with a two-story reading room,
  • a conference center and
  • Café.
Spanning a nearly 35-year partnership with Marquette University, the new law school facility is the twelfth university building Opus has built on campus since 1972.
