DURHAM, NC – The Winter 2009 edition of Duke Law Magazine makes it clear: Law School faculty, students, staff, and alumni are all reveling in the new J. Michael Goodson Library and Star Commons. In the article, “From Library to Commons” writer Forrest Norman recaps the building’s November 8 dedication, which included a keynote address by US Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy. Duke President Richard Brodhead is quoted as saying “When you reach the point where a great law school has a great building, you realize it wasn’t just an ornament. It really is an enabler of things.”
In the words of Duke Law alumnus George Krouse, “The combination of this library, in its spectacular new condition, and Star Commons, virtually adjacent to it, really gives us such a sense of pride as alumni as to what this school has now become physically, as well as reputationally.”
