This is a favorite spot to take any friends or family members that are visiting Ann Arbor for the first time. It is a beautiful area with quiet courtyards and an ivy league feel. Very impressive.

I spent 3 years at Michigan law a few decades back, and visit every year during football season. The first time I saw the law quad, I was astonished at the almost-medieval feel it had. It was and remains a beautiful facility, enhanced by a recent addition across the street that is consistent with the historical architecture. But the prize... More

Supposedly was considered for the Hogwart's dining scene in Harry Potter movies, It is a lovely law library from a woman who has been to more than a few of them. You can walk in without ID!

It's definitely a "must see": walk inside the quad and feel like you're in the Old Country. The library is just beautiful.

WOW! This is such a beautiful, beautiful part of the UM Campus. Breathtakingly beautiful is how I would describe it, I feel like I'm back in England visiting some of the beautiful churches & Universities there. When we walked into the law library, I truly felt like we were in the Hogwart's Great hall in the Harry Potter series. Long... More

Although not that old, the Law Quad reminds me of the colleges at Oxford University in England or at Yale in New Haven.. It is very peaceful to walk in the Quad among the stately buildings. The Library is also worth a look. It has English style wooden paneling. It was packed with students when I looked in on a... More

This is the "Harry Potter-looking" part of the campus. My impression is that it's designed like Cambridge University in England (I either heard that by someone who knew what they were talking about or I made it up -- I honestly can't remember). The architecture and atmosphere of this Quadrangle is awe-inspiring. When I die, I want to come back... More

A trip to the University of Michigan campus is NOT complete without a walk-through of the impressive and stately Law Quad. It is the epitome of what an old Law school should look like! The architecture and windows are amazing, and still in quite good repair, considering how old some of these structures are. Photos cannot capture the character of... More

Quite nice, although they can not compare with classical university buildings which are REALLY old (like Oxford and Cambridge). However, it is nice to have a short walk around (20 min are enough) and maybe step into some of the buildings. And what is definitely missing is ivy! All leading law schools have plenty of ivy, so get going and... More
