Building the next generation of leaders
In furtherance of the ASU Charter, the ASU Law Advance Program is committed to inclusive excellence. This year-long program brings together a cohort of 20 first-year students whose backgrounds offer different perspectives along socioeconomic, geographic, disability, racial, ethnic, cultural, religious, gender, and sexual orientation dimensions.
Admitted students selected for the program will participate in a three-day, pre-orientation workshop focused on law school success strategies. The workshop also will provide Advance students with early opportunities to interact with ASU Law faculty and staff, current students, ASU Law alumni, and members of the Arizona legal community. The program continues throughout the students’ first year of law school, offering events and programming open only to the Advance cohort.
Each Advance Program participant will also be paired with an attorney mentor and a 2L/3L student mentor. This network from within the law school community and beyond are firmly committed to helping our students realize their professional goals.
