Law School Construction Begins

Elder Benson, right, is seen aboard the groundbreaking bulldozer with BYU President Dallin H. Oaks, left, and Rex E. Lee, dean of the new school. Scheduled for completion by March 1975, the five-story structure will house a 200,000-volume library, 12 lecture and seminar rooms, offices, and miscellaneous rooms. The building will also provide meeting places for four campus branches of the Church. Total enrollment in the new school is eventually expected to be 500; classes will get under way this fall in temporary quarters with 150 students.
