Bullocks Wilshire Building

The Bullocks Wilshire Building used to be a luxury department store and is now used for special events. It is an Art Deco style structure that was designed by John and Donald Parkinson. During its days as a department store it catered to famous consumers like Marlene Dietrich, Alfred Hitchcock, John Wayne, Greta Garbo, and Clark Gable. Famous employees include Angela Lansbury and Patricia Nixon. Today, the building is home to the Southwestern Law School. A portion of the building houses the Leigh H. Taylor Law Library, the second largest private law library in California. The first floor of the building is home to the Julian C. Dixon Courtroom and Advocacy Center. On the fifth floor is the Tea Room where students and instructors enjoy dining. There are tiered classrooms and seminar spaces, garden terraces, and student lounges. The building is not open to the public on the daily basis, but there is a Tea and Tour program that runs once every year when classes are not in session. Those interested in attending can sign up on the Bullocks Wilshire Building website. The building is available for special events provided the dates do not conflict with classes at Southwestern. Those who are considering hosting their event at the building can schedule a tour of the property.
