The striking Gothic-style buildings that form the William W. Cook Law Quadrangle include the Lawyers Club with residential facilities for 227 students; the Legal Research building, which contains the magnificent Reading Room and faculty offices; a modern underground addition named the Allan F. and Alene Smith Library, regarded as an architectural tour de force and one of the world's best law libraries; and Hutchins Hall, with classrooms, seminar rooms, and faculty and administrative offices. (from Michigan Law Architecture)

This collection and its series include publications about the Law School buildings; a picture gallery of the buildings through the years; photos of the cartoons and windows of Hutchins Hall; photos of the Michigan Law Reading Room seals; and photos of the corbels, carvings, inscriptions, and gargoyles throughout the walkways between South University and the Law Quadrangle.
