This year marks the 40th anniversary of the Law School building, Walter F. Mondale Hall. Dedicated in the spring of 1978, the building and the vision behind it have provided the foundation for numerous achievements in the past four decades, enhancing the life of the Law School and its success.

The Library and Riesenfeld Center's current exhibit, in celebration of the 40th anniversary of Walter F. Mondale Hall, highlights the development of plans for a new Law School building and its 2001 addition, and pays tribute in photographs to the Law School's great friend, Walter Mondale ('56), and his deep involvement in the life of the Law School for over six decades.

The exhibit was created by Ian Moret, Patrick Graybill and Ryan Greenwood.

The exhibit is open in the Riesenfeld Rare Books Research Center through December 10. For more information or directions, please contact Ryan Greenwood (rgreenwo@umn.edu; 612-625-7323).
