Arizona State University – Sandra Day in the High Rising Schools of Phoenix.
The Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law at Arizona State University is one of the country’s preeminent law schools. Ranked No. 27 nationally by U.S. News & World Report; ASU Law provides comprehensive and personalized legal education through graduate programs with a wide range of courses, popular focus areas, and unique experiences. ASU Law’s world-class faculty and administrators provide students with unparalleled opportunities to gain insights and practical skills needed to address legal challenges locally, nationally, and globally. More than 90 percent of ASU Law students participate in public service through externships, clinics, and pro bono activities.
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.
