Founded in 1915 as the first law school in Arizona, the James E. Rogers College of Law is a national leader in legal education, research and scholarship.

Its core values — justice, professional integrity, public leadership and community service — impact all of its programs, activities and decisions. The college is small by choice, with approximately 150 students in each entering class and a total student body of about 500. The college's size and varied curriculum permit small classes and close interaction between students and faculty.<--break->
