General

  • Mission:
  • Our goal is to create a $1,000,000 fund at the Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law at Arizona State University (the required amount for a Professorship by ASU) which will provide a 4% return per annum. The resulting $40,000 per year will help supplement the professor's salary, allowing us to attract the best and the brightest for the position. Once the Professorship is endowed it will last in perpetuity.
    Many of Arizona's future water lawyers will be trained at the Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law. These future attorneys will benefit from the College's ability to attract the best and brightest by virtue of having an endowed chair dedicated to this substantive area of the law. We seek to endow a professorship chair in the name of Joseph Feller, a beloved natural resources law professor who died tragically in 2013. Joe was a professor at the College of Law for more than 25 years and taught many hundreds of students.

  • Overview:
  • The Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law is located on the 700-acre main campus of Arizona State University and is the state's preeminent law school. Our entering credentials are now in the top 10% of all applicants and we are ranked number 31 of all law schools in the nation.

    Our institutionally supported pro bono program enables students to make a difference in the lives of those who lack the resources to pay for quality legal assistance. Last year, our students contributed more than 73,000 hours of law-related public service to low-income and underserved populations. This amounts to services with a fair market value of more than $6.2 million. We currently have 24 student-run pro bono organizations and two-thirds of graduates participated in pro bono activities.

    The College of Law also provides more than 250 externship placements for students each year. Externs work with judges, legislative offices, and administrative agencies, ranging from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit to the Arizona Legislature to the Center for Law in the Public Interest.

    We also have several top notch centers and programs, including the Center for Law, Science, and Innovation was the first of its kind in the country, specializing in studying the intersections of law and science. The Indian Legal Program is considered the premiere program for students wanting to specialize in Indian and tribal law. The Center for Law and Global Affairs seeks to teach and inspire research about new forms of transnational public-private governance that do not fit neatly into the old paradigms of public international law.

    Through its Program on Law & Sustainability, the law school collaborates in areas of environmental law with the Wrigley Global Institute of Sustainability, the U.S. Dept. of Energy and the State Office of Indian Energy. We also have more than ten faculty members, scholars, and associate professors engaging in work in this area. Our students engage in the Environmental Law Society, research clusters and the Energy Policy Innovation Council (a think tank) to name a few.

    The Program on Law & Sustainability, along with the entire College of Law, will be housed in the new Arizona Center for Law and Society which will open in Fall 2016. This $129 million building located in downtown Phoenix is a state-of-the art facility and is designed to engage not only lawyers but the community at large.
