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.

Additional Information

Each class will have a table(s) reserved for them at the BBQ. Please check in at the reunion table in the main lobby. For more information on reunion activities, call Donna Ream at 520-626-2400.
