Designed by Tsoi/Kobus Associates, the building opened in September 1999 on one of Boston's most prominent sites. The 300,000-square-foot, seven-story building is located in the heart of historic Boston along the Freedom Trail and steps from Boston Common.
Named for Suffolk University President David J. Sargent, a graduate of Suffolk Law School, former dean and professor of law, Sargent Hall creates a distinctive identity for Suffolk University Law School and consolidates the school’s curriculum and activities in one facility. The building is emblematic of Suffolk Law's contributions to the field of law. Its classical lines are symbolic both of higher education and of the halls of justice. Yet it is accessible at street level, just as Suffolk Law School has always been accessible to all students, no matter what their means or backgrounds.
- Includes 18 classrooms ranging in size from seminar rooms to lecture halls, three moot courtrooms, administrative and faculty offices, an alumni club, a bookstore, and a major law library that occupies the building’s top three floors.
- System of stacking atria creates a vertical campus that encourages interaction among the law-school community and supports public activities.
- All spaces feature flexible, state-of-the-art data and multimedia capabilities.
