ASU Law prides itself on its network of engaged alumni and its relationship to the broader legal community, which has fully embraced the law school and is dedicated to the success of its graduates. The move to the Beus Center for Law and Society in downtown Phoenix in fall 2016 greatly enhanced ASU Law’s ability to connect with the legal community. Students are now steps away from the courts, government offices, and businesses in the heart of Phoenix, the nation’s sixth largest city.
In 2006, the law school was renamed to honor Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, the first woman appointed to the Supreme Court of the United States. Justice O’Connor (ret.) is a frequent visitor to ASU Law where she lends her knowledge and expertise to the next generation of lawyers and others interested in the legal profession.
