  1. 1. Golden Gate University Objective 6 - Lawyering Skills Program 07.23.12
  2. 2. Objective 6: Lawyering Skills Program draft GUIDING PRINCIPLES - Objective 6• Design a space to support advanced technological and interactive programs where students can receive hands-on learning • Support the concept of experiential versus lecture-based learning, and align with the law school’s pedagogical stance as a ‘practice-ready’ graduate program • House state-of-the-art technology that is being used in real courtrooms • Plan for varying uses and flexible work spaces, in particular for teams of 4-8, and groups of 16 and 25-30 • Create a realistic, simulated courtroom experience • Be able to hold mock trials and competitions in a space that accurately reflects an actual courtroom • Provide a space for informal learning, gathering, and research • Create spaces for informal research and study for smaller groups (4-8)• Feature the Lawyering Skills Program as a distinguishing asset of the Law School • Create physical spaces that facilitate the pedagogical focus on advocacy and courtroom training, as well as provide naming opportunities • Establish the program as a source of pride that hosts competitions and events with other law schools • Leverage the physical space in support of the law school’s goal to become nationally renowned for its litigation and advocacy training proprietary and confidential Golden Gate University SF Remodel Project - Phase 7: Master Planning & Programming 35 MKTHINK

  23. 23. Discovery & Assessment Site Visit and Interview Conclusions • Rooms currently being used as courtrooms are simply classrooms and offices that are adjusted and modified for use as courtrooms; this makeshift use can be frustrating for the users and contributes to the overall low occupancy of classroom space, and overall provides an inefficient use of space. • Aside from 1 or 2 auxiliary rooms (storage, conference room, etc), the rooms currently used for STEP and litigation courses currently provide enough raw square footage for courtroom- style classes. Based on occupancy loads (STEP observations only), there is in fact plenty of total square footage. Providing rooms properly sized and equipped for these trial-type courses would mitigate this issue, and would increase space efficiencies. • The distance between current rooms contributes to a sense of disconnection within the program and the Law School • Centralizing the Moot Courts and potentially providing an interactive hub that connects all of these rooms would both physically and symbolically strengthen the identity of the Law School • There exists inadequate technology and furniture these rooms, which require realistic courtroom setups • Given the Law School’s desire to be a skills-oriented, courtroom-ready program, the proper spatial arrangements of a real courtroom must be made, and current technology should be housed in these rooms proprietary and confidentialGolden Gate University SF Remodel Project - Phase 7: Master Planning & Programming MKTHINK 23
