I think Oklahoma Univ. has a nice law school.  They just finished construction in 2002. Outside there is a huge courtyard with a fountain. Inside there is a beautiful courtroom, and a reading room that was modeled after the original law school.

Not to be picky... but as someone who grew up and lived in Oklahoma till I left for college, OU is actually the University of Oklahoma, not Oklahoma University  :)

Okay, so I am picky.  No big deal.

I've heard that UCONN is rediculously gorgeous but haven't found anyone who was able to give me any pictures  :(

Their web site leaves me wanting more so I'll probably go up there after/if I get accepted to check it out.

I've heard that as well.  I hope I get in!  I haven't visited, but it's not too far at all from where I am right now - it's about 50 minutes away.

You'd think with the gorgeous campus they'd use it as a selling point and advertise it more on the website.

I'd love to go visit, but I go to school halfway across the country, so if you do go let me know what you think.

I think that U-Dub is pretty hard to beat for overall campus. Its pretty amazing, its a little like ann-arbor/madison but more compact, although the sourounding neighberhood leaves a little to be desired, the actual campus is somewhat closed of and is filled with gothic buildings and huge trees. As for the law building it is just two years old, and was paid for by Bill Gates. Its an amazing building, i do all my studying for undergrad there.
Of the schools ive visited so far the only law buildings that compare are Seattle U (i took my lsat there), although i didnt see the library, it is otherwise just as nice as Gates Hall.
Vanderbilt also had an amazingly nice buillding, minus the library which was tiny. It had a real nice campus too, with a full size replica of the Parthenon across the street is you can believe it.
All three of these building were built (or completly not partially remodeled) in the last 5 years, which usually correlates to a great building. So by that measure Duke should been one of the nicest since they just finished a new building this year and whoever else has put down the cash on a new building. These high tech new facilities usually costs 20-50 million dollars so not everyone builds a new building that often

I agree that UVA is gorgeous, and GW has nice amenities -- but it isn't really a campus.  Gtown, while not as nice uniformily, does have a better campus atmosphere. (and the undergraduate campus is one of the prettiest in the country according to US News I think -- luckily you graduate there :-P  )

USC is not an attractive campus, despite being filled with attractive peoples.
