Mississippi College School of Law Commits to Downtown Jackson with $7.5 Million Campus Investment

The Mississippi College School of Law announced plans to complete a $7.5 million renovation to its campus.

This project marks the first major renovation at MC Law in 20 years and will include a plan to improve campus aesthetics and amenities. This multi-phase project will be completed in collaboration with CDFL Architects + Engineers and Alliant Construction.

“Our campus lies in the heart of our state’s legal community, and we’re proud to make this investment into Downtown Jackson. We’re here to stay,” said Mississippi College President Blake Thompson. “We’re excited to offer an updated space that will not only better serve our current students but also enhance admissions for future generations of MC law.”

MC Law recently updated all exterior signage and additional updates will include: 

  • A general campus “facelift” with new landscaping and signage
  • Revamped library space
  • Updated classrooms
  • Technology integration throughout campus
  • More collaborative social spaces for students and faculty
  • An enhanced Student Center
  • Improvements to the Advocacy Center

A virtual tour of the project is available at

“We’re excited to watch these changes unfold over the next few months,” said MC School of Law Dean John Anderson. “Once complete, our updated campus will be a boon to our students and to downtown Jackson as a whole.”

The Mississippi Bar, local bar associations, state courts, federal agencies, local law firms, non-profits and many Downtown Jackson businesses will all benefit from the renovations as they continue to make use of the law school’s amenities. MC also looks forward to potential partnerships with the Farish Street district and other Downtown Jackson organizations in the future. Additionally, the renovations will benefit veterans and others in need through the many legal clinics providing access to justice on the MC Law campus.
