The University


The University of Arizona was founded in 1885 and is one of the nation‚??s leading research universities, ranked 16th for research and development expenditures among public universities in 2002 by the National Science Foundation. The Faculty of the University of Arizona includes scores of nationally recognized scholars and teachers, including a Nobel laureate, many Sloan, Guggenheim and MacArthur Fellows, Fulbright scholars and members of the National Academy of Sciences and Institute of Medicine. The College of Law, founded in 1915, is the oldest law school in Arizona and has a rich and distinguished history. Wehave a full-time JD program, two LLM programs, and an SJD program with a total of approximately 500 enrolled students each year. The College of Law Library is one of the best legal research facilities in the Southwest, with a collection of over 420,000 volumes and the latest in computer-based legal research through Lexis, Westlaw and Internet access.


The Students


The students of the College of Law are a talented and diverse group culturally, educationally and geographically with rich work and volunteer experience. Each year about 150 JD candidates enroll in an entering class, and about 30 students with law degrees enroll in our two LL.M. programs in International Trade Law and in Indigenous Peoples Law and Policy. A limited-enrollment SJD program is available to students seeking an intellectually challenging opportunity for academic specialization. Admission is very competitive; the 158 members of the 2007 Fall entering class represent 27 states, 71 undergraduate schools and 15 graduate programs. The law school LSAT median is 161 and the median undergraduate GPA is 3.50. Fifty-four percent of the Fall 2007 entering class are women; 32 percent are students of color; 15 percent have graduate degrees. Twenty percent of our graduates enter judicial clerkships after graduation, one of the highest percentages of all public law schools.


The Faculty


The College of Law has 36 full-time faculty, complemented by a diverse adjunct faculty. With a ratio of 12 to 1, The College has one of the most favorable student-faculty ratios of any American law school. Many members of the faculty are nationally recognized legal scholars, and 20 members of the faculty hold named professorships. An extraordinary number of major texts are authored and edited by our faculty (e.g., Mauet on Trial Techniques; Dobbs on Torts and the Law of Remedies), with more than twelve nationally used casebooks and another half-dozen hornbooks written by our full-time faculty members. Practicing attorneys readily recognize such classics as Dobbs on Torts and McCormick‚??s Evidence, both written and updated by Arizona faculty.




The tuition structure of The University of Arizona Rogers College of Law affords students the opportunity to pursue a legal education of outstanding quality without extraordinary debt burden. For the J.D., LL.M. and S.J.D. programs, tuition and fees for the 2007-2008 academic year are $17,700 for Arizona residents and $28,500 for non-residents.


Clinical Programs & Internships


The Rogers College of Law has a number of clinical programs - both in-house and placement programs. The four in-house clinics are the Immigration Law, Domestic Violence, Child Advocacy and Indigenous Peoples Law Clinics. The placement clinics consist of the Criminal Defense Clinic (students placed with public defender offices), Criminal Prosecution Clinic (students placed with prosecution agencies) and the Judicial Clerking Program (students clerk with federal and state court judges). Additionally, the College has internships with United States Senate, Congressional and White House Drug Policy offices, as well as state, Governor and legislative internships, a Ninth Circuit pro bono appellate project, a pro bono Justice Project, and internships with the Navajo, Tohono O‚??odham, White Mountain Apache and Pascua Yaqui tribal governments.


Career & Professional Development


The professionally staffed Career Office provides employers, students and alumni with resources and counseling for professional development. In 2007-2008, 170+ firms, agencies, judges and corporations visited the College to interview our students. The Career Office staff assists employers with their hiring needs, whether summer associate, permanent attorney, or short-term research projects. Facilities and assistance are provided for employers who wish to interview on-campus, off-campus or via teleconferencing. College alumni and other subscribers can be reached by employers through our web-based job publication, The Career AdvoCAT. The Class of 2007 found 95% employment six months after graduation, with the largest percentage (87%) choosing legal work with traditional law firms, judicial clerkships and government practice. Geographically, 64% of the Class of 2006 found employment in Arizona, while the remaining 36% found employment in 16 other states.
