Department Description

The Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law at Arizona State University is one of the country's preeminent law schools. Ranked No. 26 nationally by U.S. News & World Report, ASU Law is a leading provider of comprehensive and personalized legal education. Graduate programs with a range of popular focus areas, study abroad experiences, externships, community service and pro bono activities, and more, give students unparalleled opportunities to gain insights and practical skills needed to address legal challenges locally, nationally, and globally.

The law school prides itself on having a broad network of engaged alumni and a legal community dedicated to the success of ASU Law graduates and the legal profession. The ability to connect with the legal community will only be enhanced when ASU Law moves to the Arizona Center for Law and Society in downtown Phoenix in fall 2016. Students will be steps away from the courts, government buildings, and businesses in the heart of Arizona, in the nation's sixth largest city.

In 2006, the law school was renamed to honor Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, the first female to be appointed to the United States Supreme Court. 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.
