The University of Wyoming College of Law was founded in 1920. Classes were held on one floor of the University library building until the College of Law moved to a separate facility in 1953. Because of increasing class size, the College of Law relocated to its current building in 1977. Considerable library space and a variety of other rooms were added to the building in 1993. The building contains three classrooms, a moot courtroom, two seminar rooms, the law library, and faculty and staff offices.
