Washburn University in Topeka, Kan., has dedicated a $34 million facility for its law school.

KSNT-TV reports that the 65,000-square-foot Robert J. Dole Hall has been named for former Kansas Senator Robert Dole, who was a graduate of the law school.

The building has 12,400 square feet of classroom space, 7,000 square feet of courtroom and advocacy space, a 2,500-square-foot law clinic and an 11,000-square-foot library.

The building honors prominent historical figures who have graduated from Washburn Law including a mural of the lawyers who took the Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka case to the Supreme Court and an outdoor plaza also honoring Dole, former majority leader of the U.S. Senate and Republican nominee for president.

The university built the facility on the former site of married student housing.
