The Law School
With almost a century behind us, the University of Arizona James E. Rogers College of Law–Arizona Law–is known for intensive, individualized teaching, small class sizes, and a close-knit community of about 450 students. Approximately 30% of our students are from outside the U.S. This diversity provides you with opportunities to meet people from many cultures and gain a greater awareness of other legal systems, while building a network of contacts from around the world. You’ll build enduring relationships with your classmates and our alumni, all in an environment that challenges you to extend your reach–even beyond your comfort zone–to follow your passion, and blaze your own trail.
At Arizona Law you’ll learn from professors who literally “wrote the book” in their fields, and, because of a low student faculty ratio of 10-1, you’ll have unparalleled opportunities to know your professors and work closely alongside them. Among the law faculty, 23 hold chairs or professorships, 14 have been elected to the prestigious American Law Institute, three have been named Regents’ Professors, the most distinguished faculty level at the University of Arizona, and one has been nominated for the Nobel Prize. Arizona Law faculty have distinctive strengths in both U.S. and international business law, international trade, intellectual property, environmental law, and trial advocacy.
As an Arizona Law student, you’ll receive a comprehensive and rigorous legal education at a very reasonable tuition rate, allowing you to complete your program with less debt and have more options when you graduate.
If you’re looking for an unmatched individualized education at a first-tier American law school, and if you’re looking for exceptional value in your legal education, you should choose Arizona Law.
