Additional Information

Ms. Shirin Ebadi, winner of the 2003 Nobel Peace Prize, addressed a 600-person crowd at the University of Arizona Student Union. Her free public lecture sponsored by the James E. Rogers College of Law, in association with the Dept of Near Eastern Studies, gave attendees a good understanding of current issues at the intersection of religion and governance in the Middle East and throughout the world. After a fifty minute lecture delivered through a Persian translator, Ms. Ebadi answered questions from the audience. The College of Law would like to thank the UA Iranian-American Students Association for their work in organizing the lecture.

The University of Arizona James E. Rogers College of Law is the oldest law school in Arizona and one of the first established in the West. Since 1915, the College has educated many of Arizona’s most distinguished judges and lawyers; its graduates hold positions of leadership in the legal, corporate, and political arenas both in the state and nationwide.

The College is singularly committed to first-rate teaching, research, and service to the public and legal profession. Our size – a total student body of about 500 – fosters close interaction and a high level of intellectual engagement among students and faculty.

Tucson is located in the beautiful Sonoran desert, near the border of two nations, and in a state that embraces tribal lands, with the attendant complexities of multiple cultures and sovereignities. Arizona is a stimulating, unique setting in which to work and to live.
