The £6m Law and Psychology building provides contemporary teaching and learning facilities for students in the School of Law, Criminology and Policing. The three-storey building includes a 265-seat lecture theatre, seminar and tutorial rooms, and social learning areas which encourage a more informal and interactive style of learning.
Elsewhere on campus, there is a mooting room (a mock courtroom) where Law and Policing students can train and practice their advocacy skills and cross-examination techniques, as well as preparing for giving evidence in court. The EHU Police Training and Simulation Facility, part of which is furbished as a police station, is used to simulate a wide range of crime scenes.
