The Cardozo building includes the Kathryn O. and Alan C. Greenberg Center for Student Life with its spacious lounge, the Dr. Lillian and Dr. Rebecca Chutick Law Library, which boasts an exceptionally comprehensive reference collection, as well as the Jacob Burns Moot Court, where many of the school’s conferences and symposia take place.
