The Notre Dame Law School building will get a new name as a result of an alumnus who has donated $15 million to the school.

Robert F. Biolchini, and his wife, Frances, donated the money to the school to help underwrite the renovation of the building. After renovations are finished, the building will be renamed Biolchini Hall. Renovations include an expanded Krege Law Library, two new 50-seat classrooms, new space for the Notre Dame Law Review, and new offices and workspace for admissions and career services. The exterior of the building will also be restored where necessary.

A covered archway will link Biolchini Hall to Eck Hall of Law, which is currently under construction. Eck Hall, named after graduate Frank E. Eck, is scheduled to be completed in 2009. Renovations to the Notre Dame Law School building are expected to start once Eck Hall is finished.

Biolchini is a 1962 graduate, member of the University of Notre Dame Board of Trustees, and a partner in the Tulsa law firm Stuart Biolchini & Turner.
