Valparaiso University Law School – Location
The Law School is located on the southwest side of the Valparaiso University campus in a park-like setting that is less than a mile from downtown Valparaiso. Wesemann Hall, the main law school building, is located at 656 S. Greenwich Street. The Heritage Hall Lawyering Skills Center was newly reconstructed and opened in 2011: it is located on the site of one of the University’s oldest buildings from 1879.
