A Landmark in Legal Education
Southwestern occupies nearly two city blocks in the mid-Wilshire district of Los Angeles, minutes from downtown. Surrounded by major law firms, corporate headquarters and Superior Court facilities, the law school is less than a half hour from the quiet canyons and beautiful beaches along the Pacific Ocean.
The campus, which fronts the legendary Wilshire Boulevard, is one block from the nearest Metro station and easily accessible by several major freeways. This unique location enables Southwestern students to live in and explore the diverse and exciting neighborhoods throughout the city.
While it is situated amidst an urban backdrop, the Southwestern campus is decidedly tranquil. The green, park-like Promenade and Commons invite study and discussion, and quiet terraces with city views are scattered throughout the property.
The centerpiece of the campus is the Bullocks Wilshire Building, a 1929 Art Deco landmark that has been restored and converted into a dynamic educational facility. The five-story structure holds the school’s award-winning Taylor Law Library; the recently completed, state-of-the-art Dixon Courtroom and Advocacy Center; technology-enhanced classrooms and seminar rooms; a dining area; student lounges; a fitness center; and administrative offices.
Opposite Bullocks Wilshire is the six-story Westmoreland building, which houses additional classrooms, seminar rooms and administrative offices. The campus also includes multi-level and surface parking lots.
A vibrant blend of beauty, modernity and tradition in the heart of a thriving metropolitan area, the Southwestern campus is an inspiring setting for the study of law.
