The University of Pennsylvania Law School will hold a groundbreaking ceremony for a state-of-the-art building with a rooftop garden and 350-seat auditorium.  The building replaces Pepper Hall and will join the Law School’s three other inter-connected buildings.  The new building will have three stories on its eastern wing and two stories with a roof deck on its western wing.  It’s one of the first law schools in the country to be LEED certified, designated to meet the environmentally sound building standard.

The new building’s name will be announced at the ceremony.

The 18-month project, which includes renovations to the student lounge, is scheduled to be completed in January 2012.
