Video showcases John M. O’Quinn Law Building at UH Law Center

Dec. 06, 2022 – The University of Houston Law Center released a video tour highlighting the unique spaces that make up the five-story, 180,000-square-foot John M. O’Quinn Law Building.

The video guide, produced in conjunction with Strata Visuals, provides an expanded look at the UH Law Center’s new home, which has dedicated spaces for instruction, research, clinics and events.

The five-story, cantilevered building was designed by the women-owned architecture firm, Shepley Bulfinch. The facility is the newest law school building in Texas and one of the newest in the country.

Built with the personal and educational needs of faculty and students as a top priority, the new facility is equipped with technology and collaborative spaces that will expand teaching capabilities. The building also has better versatility to serve alumni, the community, the judiciary, members of the bar and other professionals.

The ultramodern nearly $93 million John M. O’Quinn Law Building, located at 4170 Martin Luther King Boulevard, represents a new era in legal education for the UH Law Center, which opened 75 years ago with classes in converted World War II barracks.

Grown substantially since its early days, the Law Center is home to the University of Houston’s J.D. and LL.M. degree programs. The building also houses nationally ranked clinics, specialty institutes, pre-law pipeline programs and career services.
