The University of Denver's College of Law houses one of the nation's top environmental and natural resource law programs. The first LEED-certified law school in the nation, the facility offered the College an opportunity to design a building consistent with its mission: a green facility that reduces environmental impact and prioritizes occupant safety. The new 210,000 ft2, four-floor facility, constructed on a former parking lot, includes a library, large lecture halls, training courtrooms, a dining hall, and faculty offices. Read the full 12-page case study.

These LEED buildings are popping up all over the US, it's very awesome to see. Here in Naperville, Illinois we just got our first LEED certified hotel, the Hotel Arista (http://www.hotelarista.com ). They've been getting a lot of buzz around here for doing a huge amount to become eco-friendly, which I have to say is quite admirable.
