Your support is crucial to the success of our students and the legal community. Proceeds will go to benefit the students at ASU through direct scholarships and by strengthening programming. This year, in addition, a portion of proceeds will go to the Ruth V. McGregor Project to Stop Sex Trafficking. This amazing initiative provides free legal services, as well as public policy advocacy, for victims of sex trafficking here in Arizona. Staffed by an incredible group of lawyers and advocates, this initiative needs your support, and we are pleased to give you more information about it during the Auction.
The average cost of law school has skyrocketed over the last decade. Tuition at ASU is high — costing $26,000 for in-state and $40,000 for out-of-state. However ,we have not raised tuition since 2011 and, with your support, we hope we can avoid raising it again in the future. In addition, students at ASU are fortunate — our tuition remains in the bottom 50 percent of all law schools while we enjoy a Top 30 ranking, far higher than national-average employment outcomes, and some of the best teachers and researchers in the country. This year’s auction is one small step in making law school more affordable. We will continue to do all we can---and hope you will as well. See you at the auction!
The Ruth V. McGregor Project to Stop Sex Trafficking is a multifaceted program that involves faculty, students and community organizations in providing a range of legal aid and other assistance to victims of sex trafficking.
The program is named for Ruth V. McGregor, a College of Law alumna and former Chief Justice of the Arizona Supreme Court, and strong advocate in the efforts to stop sex-trafficking.
The project addresses the special issues facing victims and survivors of sex-trafficking. In the short time since its inception, the project has laid a strong foundation in the community as a go-to resource for victims. In accordance with community need and the goals established by the project’s funders, the project has assisted victims of sex trafficking by providing a range of services in the key areas of advocacy, community awareness, and education.
