The largest state capital in the nation, Phoenix offers a unique confluence of city, county, state and federal courts, along with numerous prominent law firms and nonprofit organizations – many within walking distance or a short light-rail ride from ASU Law’s campus. That presents an abundance and variety of opportunities for ASU Law’s thriving internship and externship programs, and post-grad employment.
Beus Center for Law and Society
The Beus Center for Law and Society is home to the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law at Arizona State University. With its downtown location, ASU Law is centrally located in the heart of the justice and economic pulse of Arizona. Awarded the LEED GOLD Certification in May 2020, the BCLS is recognized as an environmentally green building and is also ranked the No.2 Law building in the Nation by PreLaw magazine.
Many forms of public transit are available in the Phoenix area, including the light rail which has become a popular mode of transportation for ASU Law students.
Arizona ranks among the best states in the nation for job growth, entrepreneurship, net migration and growth of its young population. And Phoenix is a top destination for young professionals, based on its low unemployment rate, affordability compared to other major cities, and competitive salaries for recent college graduates. Phoenix is also home to several prestigious global law firms with attorneys working locally and nationally from offices here and around the world.
