Cutting-Edge Technology Enhances New Wolf Law Building
BOULDER-Gone are the days of professors simply using a chalk board and textbook.
The new Wolf Law Building at the University of Colorado will feature cutting-edge
technology to support teaching and research at Colorado Law.
"We are very proud to now be able to provide our students and faculty with one of
the most technologically advanced law schools in the country," said Professor Scott
Peppet, the Chair of the Law School's Technology Committee. "This will provide our
students with the best learning environment and an opportunity for the very best
technology in legal education. It will give our students a great advantage."
Some of technology highlights include fully digital courtrooms, state-of-the-art
classrooms with the most advanced learning technologies, top-tier video conferencing
capabilities for distance learning, internet-based video recording stations and interview
rooms, computer labs and learning areas throughout the new law library (which serves
as the law library for the entire Rocky Mountain region) and digital information
kiosks throughout the building.
Justice Stephen Breyer will dedicate the 183,000 square foot building on September
8th. The Wolf Law Building will feature two high-tech courtrooms, 50 percent more
space for law journal offices and law clinics, and the largest resource collection
and most technologically advanced law library in the twelve-state Rocky Mountain
Also, in keeping with the outstanding national reputation for environmental law,
Colorado Law is striving to make Wolf Law the first Gold-certified public law school
building in the country under the exacting standards of the U.S. Green Building Council's
Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Certificate (LEED Certified). That
means 39 percent less indoor water usage than a conventional building, 100 percent
renewable energy electricity, and recycling 90 percent of all construction waste.
