Dean Christopher Waters discussed Windsor Law's upcoming building renovations in the latest issue of Law Times.
Diamond Schmitt Architects have been selected to redesign the UWindsor law school, with renovations likely to begin in 2020. The school has opted to keep and update its existing on-campus building, built in the 1970s, instead of moving downtown.
With the building redesign, the aim is not to make room for more students, but rather, to adjust the building for existing students — for example, adding more women’s washrooms to reflect demographic shift since the 1970s. Among other plans are a circular or non-hierarchical room for teaching Indigenous legal orders, improved accessibility, natural light, and more collaborative work spaces.
