Leo Goodwin, Sr. Hall undergoes Renovation


A major renovation project is underway at the Leo Goodwin, Sr. Hall, the home of NSU’s Shepard Broad College of Law. Building entrances to the atrium, the atrium itself and the Panza Maurer Law Library are under construction and are closed until further notice.

Once the work is completed throughout the building, law students and guests will have access to eight more study rooms in the law library as well as new floors, carpeting, furniture, paint and a totally revamped atrium. A new seminar room which will accommodate up to 28 people is being added on the third floor. In addition, windows in the north and south vestibules are being replaced with impact-rated windows.

Services for Shepard Broad College of Law students also will be streamlined in an area off the atrium which will include student services, admissions, career development and financial aid.
