Our Campus and Facilities - Capital University Law School

Our Campus and Facilities


  • CapLaw BuildingCapital University Law School is located at 303 East Broad Street in downtown Columbus. The Law School moved into this six-floor building in 1997 and purchased the adjacent annex building in 2004. The Law School campus is separated from Capital University’s main campus, which is in nearby Bexley.

    The Law School is within the Discovery District, an area that includes other higher education institutions such as Franklin University, Columbus State Community College and Columbus College of Art and Design. The district also is home to the Columbus Metropolitan Library’s main branch and the Columbus Museum of Art. It's within walking distance of the Ohio Capitol building; state, local and federal courthouses and government buildings; numerous law firms; and Fortune 500 employers with sizable legal departments.

    The campus itself consists of one primarily building and its annex, along with several surface parking lots. The entire building has wireless internet access.

    The building includes six floors:

    Floors one and two hold most of the classrooms, the Huntington Commons, People’s Court Café, the Office of Professional Development, our Legal Clinics, our moot courtrooms, and the Barnes and Noble campus bookstore.

    Floor three contains most of the administrative offices, including the Dean’s Office, Admission, Financial Aid, Student Affairs, Records & Registration, Academic Affairs, Diversity & Inclusion, Alumni Relations, Development, Paralegal Programs, and Business Operations.

    Most of the library is housed on the fourth floor, although portions of our collection are on the third and first floors. The library includes more than a quarter-million volumes, periodicals and microfilms. The library also is equipped with state-of-the-art technology, including wireless access, and study rooms.

    The fifth and sixth floors are primarily dedicated to faculty offices, the Law Review, Graduate Law Programs, and the Center for Dispute Resolution.

    The Law School’s attached annex houses two 48-seat classrooms, student computer lab, the Family & Youth Law Center, the Family Advocacy Clinic, and Information Technology.
