Students who come to the College immediately engage with a faculty that is among the very best in the nation. Unlike many other great law schools, we recognize that tomorrow’s lawyer will not only need to have rigorous training in the foundations of law, but also a thorough understanding of how law interacts with society. Our faculty members possess more than 300 combined years of practice experience, and more than a third of them have advanced degrees beyond the J.D. And because we have one of the best student-to-faculty ratios in the country, students enjoy ready access to this wealth of training and experience.
In and out of class, students are pushed, not only by our faculty, but by their accomplished classmates as well. Our students are among the very best in the country by any metric, but we may be most proud of the dizzying array of prior experience that they bring each year. We have dozens of students with Ph.D.s, Master's degrees, and even M.D.s. Many have started successful businesses, others are professional athletes or champions of social justice, and all bring the desire to push themselves and their classmates to make an impact on the world as lawyers and leaders.
Finally, upon graduating, students will reap the benefits of being alumni of the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law. We have an incredibly proactive Career Strategy and Professional Development Mentoring Center that works tirelessly to provide advice, strategies, and opportunities for success. In addition, our graduates are embraced by our thousands of alumni placed in key positions throughout the national and local legal communities. Our grads soon discover that there are real benefits to graduating from the only major law school in Phoenix -- a bustling state capital and the nation’s sixth largest city.
Should you choose ASU, we are confident that you will look back on your days at the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law and know that you made the right choice. It all starts with an application -- we hope to see you here soon.
