Milstein Conference Center Dedicated by Harvard Law School

April 20th, 2012

Harvard Law School dedicated the Milstein Conference Center, a central feature of the Wasserstein Hall-Caspersen Student Center-Clinical Wing building that is meant to bring students and faculty together and improve the student experience.

The Milstein Conference Center consists of two multipurpose rooms, totaling 8,500 square feet, and an adjacent landscaped courtyard. Students can use the courtyard, which is provided with tables, to review their work or enjoy a meal outdoors.

“The new center will facilitate gatherings and become a true focal point for the Harvard Law School community and the broader Harvard community, bringing together students, faculty, and guests in an inspiring and beautiful space,” said Harvard Law School alumnus Howard P. Milstein, donor for the Milstein Conference Center with his wife, Abby, who is a Harvard Law School alumna. Both Howard and Abby Milstein took part in the dedication.

The Wasserstein Hall complex was designed by the architectural firm Robert A.M. Stern and Associates, and received LEED Gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. Along with the Milstein Conference Center, the building contains classrooms, a lounge, offices for student organizations, journals, and clinical programs, and an underground garage.
