George Mason University Antonin Scalia Law School

George Mason University Antonin Scalia Law School

The Arlington Campus of George Mason University emerged in 1979 when the Virginia General Assembly established the Antonin Scalia Law School, George Mason University, merging it with the International School of Law, which was housed in the old Kann's department store building in Virginia Square. The following year, the university established graduate and continuing education programs in the same building.

In 1999, the School of Law relocated to a new building, a 150,000 square-foot educational facility, located nearby on the Arlington Campus. That building is the first of a three-phase plan designed to develop the 5.2 acre site. A new 256,000 square-foot classroom building, Van Metre Hall (formerly Founders), opened in January 2011 and is used primarily to house the School of Public Policy and auxiliary university services.

Course offerings in Arlington focus on law, economics, and public policy. There are also two non-law academic and research centers located on the Arlington Campus: the Mercatus Center, and the Institute for Humane Studies.
