The building was beautiful. I liked the courtroom the best. In each of the four corners, right below the ceiling are 4 different paintings of different representations of justice throughout history. One is of Moses receiving the 10 commandments. One is of Confucius discussing law with his pupils. I cannot remember the other two paintings, but they were huge and dramatic.
