About AZ law

The James E. Rogers College of Law

Founded in 1915, the University of Arizona James E. Rogers College of Law is the oldest law school in the state of Arizona and one of the premier public law schools in the United States. Arizona Law is known for its academic rigor, small class sizes, collegiality, and sense of community. We put students at the center by providing an intensive, individualized learning experience that trains ethical and effective lawyers and leaders. Our students have the opportunity to study with nationally recognized scholars, and to put their knowledge to use far beyond the lecture hall and the library with a wide variety of hands-on learning opportunities.


The College is a part of the University of Arizona, a Research I University ranked No. 18 among all public universities by the National Science Foundation. The College is approved by the American Bar Association. Further information about ABA accreditation can be obtained from the Council of the ABA Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar.
