Munger Graduate Residence
The interdisciplinary ethos of the Munger Residence reflects the interdisciplinary ethos of Stanford Law School, which over the last three years has transformed its traditional law school curriculum to educate students more broadly through courses outside the law school and through joint degree programs. We now offer 27 formal joint degrees and continue to allow students to tailor their own joint degree in practically any discipline.
In addition, we have developed team-oriented, problem-solving courses that mix students from different disciplines and are taught by faculty from the law school and Stanford's other graduate departments and programs.
We have synchronized our academic calendar with the rest of the university, which is on quarters not semesters, so that our students can take advantage of Stanford's top-rated graduate programs and departments, all of which are within walking distance of the law school.
"If you build really good housing, it will be a huge advantage for Stanford. It will form a community that doesn't yet exist in American education. The students will educate each other."
Charles T. Munger
"The project is breathtaking in its scope and significance: a home to graduate students from throughout the university that will seamlessly meld living and studying among its residents, promoting interaction between the different professions and disciplines."
Former Dean Larry Kramer
