There are many ways to get involved while attending the Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law at Arizona State University. Students tell us they enjoy the many opportunities to take part in service and pro bono activities, student organizations, academic law journals, moot court teams, and more. Involvement in these activities is also a gateway toward additional networking.
Students have an opportunity to do meaningful work in the community while gaining practical experience. Many students gain experience by working in more than one of our many clinics where they get to do real legal work on behalf of clients, under the supervision of licensed attorneys. Class of 2015 ASU Law students graduated with more than 152,000 hours of service.
ASU Law is home to nearly 40 student organizations. The benefits of participating in these organizations are as diverse as our student body:
- Broadens perspective of the legal field
- Deepens exposure to specific legal trends and issues
- Creates comradery with fellow students
- Fosters networking opportunities with local attorneys
- Facilitates positive impact on the local community
- Provides membership to national legal organizations
If eligible, you can be part of the team that produces, edits, and publishes high-quality works of legal scholarship in one of our four law journals. ASU Law is home to the popular Arizona State Law Journal, Jurimetrics: The Journal of Law, Science & Technology, the Law Journal for Social Justice, and the Sports and Entertainment Law Journal.
Moot Court provides an opportunity for you to develop the oral and written advocacy skills you have learned in the classroom and put them to the test in a moot court competition. Judges and jurors for the competitions are often practitioners and sitting judges. The Moot Court program features two types of competitions: Internal (within ASU Law) and External (Interschool teams).
