Burton Business & Economics Building

Named for John G. Burton, a St. Louis businessman who was a trustee at the time of his death, the Burton Building, constructed in 1979, is the largest academic building on campus, housing the business and economics division, as well as American Sign Language interpreting and legal studies programs. You’ll find many classrooms and faculty offices in the Burton Building.

The Burton Building also houses the Bernard J. Weitzman Model Courtroom, which hosts actual trials convened by the Missouri Court of Appeals/Western District each year and lends itself nicely to mock trials and other events involving legal studies students. Down the hall from the Weitzman Courtroom, you’ll find the Charlotte Rose Hamilton Interpreting Lab, complete with Mac technology, allowing American Sign Language interpreting students a place to improve their signing and interpretation skills.

The Center for Student Involvement is also housed in the Burton Building, providing a meeting space and resource for all clubs and organizations.
