The Barco Law Building, formerly known as the School of Law Building, is the first facility built specifically for legal education at the University of Pittsburgh. Leaving behind its 40-year residency in the Cathedral of Learning, the spring semester of 1976 marked the beginning of a new era, as classes commenced in the new Law Building on the corner of Forbes and Bouquet. The site was previously home to Forbes Field, where both the Pittsburgh Pirates and Steelers once played. In its place stands a spacious and fully-equipped law building, aspiring to set a standard of utility and beauty for law schools everywhere. It stands as a testament to years of dedication and effort by a committed group of individuals, representing the culmination of support from countless alumni who have generously contributed their time and resources to enhance the School.
