The College of LawThe James E. Rogers College of Law is the oldest law school in Arizona and one of the first in the West. Located at the University of Arizona, one of the country's leading research institutions, in a vibrant southwestern city that straddles multiple cultural borders, the Rogers College of law has become a leader in legal education. Since 1915, more than 7,800 J.D. and LL.M. students have graduated well equipped with the knowledge, skills, and ethical framework to serve their clients and the law. Our graduates hold positions of leadership in the legal, corporate and political arenas in Arizona, across the nation, and throughout the world.

Our core values -- justice, professional integrity, public leadership, and community service -- lay the foundation for a collegial community of about 500 students, fostering close interaction among them, and between students and distinguished faculty. We draw from the University of Arizona's strengths to offer a wide variety of dual-degree programs as well as multidisciplinary programs and enrichment opportunities.

The College has significant J.D. course offerings, which expand on a rigorous traditional curriculum and expose students to emerging legal issues. Focused areas of study include environmental law, science and policy; indigenous peoples law and policy; criminal law and process; and international and comparative law, including international trade law. Within each of these areas, internationally known faculty work with students in classroom settings, scholarly research, and applied learning projects. At the post -J.D. level, the College of Law awards both LL.M. and S.J.D. degrees in international trade law and indigenous peoples law and policy. Broad clinical offerings and an award- winning trial advocacy program are critical and growing aspects of the curriculum.

The College, its alumni and its students have also created an intellectual community, with a large array of lectures, seminars, and special events each year. A Community Service Board, along with more than 20 active student organizations, further helps to identify law-related and community-based opportunities for giving. In recent years, the student body has generated national attention for its departing class gifts, which outpace almost all other gifts of their kind in the country.
