    About the College

    James E. Rogers College of Law is the law school at the University of Arizona located in Tucson, Arizona. It is named after noted broadcasting mogul and philanthropist James E. Rogers, a 1962 graduate of the school. The law school is approved by the American Bar Association and opened in 1915. It was the first law school founded in the State of Arizona. The Rogers College of Law is consistently ranked in the top tier of law schools in the U.S., and was ranked 38th nationally by U.S. News and World Report in 2008. The Rogers College of Law is one of 80 law schools nationwide to have a chapter of the Order of the Coif. It has two student publications: Arizona Law Review and Arizona Journal of International and Comparative Law.

    The school's first-year curriculum differs somewhat from that of most law schools; in addition to Torts, Contracts, Constitutional Law, Civil Procedure, and Property, the school also requires "The Regulatory State"--a course on legislative and administrative law. The first-year curriculum also requires Criminal Procedure rather than Criminal Law.

    In addition to the J.D. program, the school offers LLM degrees in Indigenous Peoples Law and Policy, and International Trade and Business Law. The International Trade and Business Law program is offered in coordination with the National Law Center for Inter-American Free Trade. Students finishing their LLM degree in either program may continue on to an S.J.D. degree after completing substantial original research into their field of study.

    Retired U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor served as the Jurist in Residence for the 2005-2006 academic term. In the spring semesters of 2006 through 2008, she has taught a course on the Supreme Court.
    In Fall 2006, Associate Justice of the Supreme Court Ruth Bader Ginsburg delivered the 27th Isaac Marks Lecture at the school, entitled "Reflections on Arizona’s Pace-Setting Justices: William Hubbs Rehnquist and Sandra Day O’Connor."

    In Spring 2006, 2003 Nobel Peace Prize winner Shirin Ebadi taught a course titled "Islam and Human Rights."
    Toni Massaro is the current Dean. Several of the school's professors are the preeminent experts in their field, including Dan Dobbs (torts), Tom Mauet (trial advocacy) and Boris Kozolchyk (international commercial law). The school boasts 32 full-time faculty members.

    Beginning with the Fall 2008 semester, classes will return to the law building after its multi-million dollar renovation.

    The College of Law at the University of Arizona is a nationally prominent law school that has developed an outstanding academic program to prepare lawyers for leadership and service throughout the State, the country and internationally. We have created a close-knit community of scholars, educators and students who seek to advance justice. Our core values— justice, professional integrity, public leadership and community service—inform all of our programs, activities and decisions.
    The University of Arizona College of Law—the first law school in Arizona and one of the first established in the West— was founded in 1915, when a Department of Law was created as part of the College of Letters, Arts and Sciences at the University of Arizona, Arizona’s first University. In 1925, the College of Law was established as the fifth college at the University of Arizona. In 1999, the College was renamed the James E. Rogers College of Law, in honor of the generous support of James E. Rogers, prominent attorney, businessman, educational leader and philanthropist, who graduated from the College of Law in 1962. During the College’s almost 100-year history, many of Arizona’s most distinguished judges and lawyers have pursued their legal educations at the UA. In addition, our graduates hold positions of leadership in the legal, corporate and political arenas throughout the U.S. and internationally. The College is fully accredited by the American Bar Association and has been a member of the Association of American Law Schools since 1931. The College is one of 80 law schools nationwide to have a chapter of the Order of the Coif, the prestigious national law academic honor society.

    The Law Library

    Perhaps nowhere in the College has technology had a greater impact on the way we train law students than in the law library. Increasingly, the legal information sources lawyers rely upon are in a digital format. The Law Library owns or subscribes to a wide array of online databases and digital libraries. In addition, the College of Law community has access to a variety of interdisciplinary databases available through the University Library. Law librarians monitor emerging digital services and secure access in response to student and faculty needs.
    The College of Law Library is a fully networked, technologically sophisticated facility that is constantly evolving. The student computer lab in the library contains networked computers allowing for easy access to a full range of digital information. Email, computerized legal research services, the Internet and electronic reserve materials are available not only through the computer lab, but also at public area work stations and through laptop ports located throughout the law library, and through a wireless network available in the library and throughout the College of Law.

    Various software applications, ranging from word processing and spreadsheets to presentation programs are available to students in the lab. Learning software in a range of law school subjects developed or distributed by the Center for Computer- Assisted Legal Instruction (CALI), a consortium of over 180 law schools, including the College of Law, is available in the laboratory. Both WESTLAW and LEXIS maintain a presence in the laboratory and students are trained in electronic legal research.

    Financial Aid

    The University of Arizona offers a variety of financial aid, including scholarships and loan opportunities, to assist students in paying for their higher education. Virtually every applicant can receive sufficient financial assistance to cover his or her University-assessed budget needs. Some of these forms of aid are need-based; others are not based upon financial need. Typically, financial aid packages combine two or more of the following types of aid:
    • Scholarships
    • Subsidized Stafford Loans
    • Unsubsidized Stafford Loans
    • Graduate Plus Loans

    To assist students in obtaining financial aid, Kimberly Marlow serves as the financial aid counselor for admitted and enrolled law students. Ms. Marlow is located in Room 201G of the College, and can be reached at (520) 626-8101 or by e-mail at [email protected]

    LL.M. in International Trade and Business Law

    In addition to the outstanding Juris Doctor (J.D.) program, the College of Law offers a graduate law program in international trade law. The Master of Laws in International Trade (LL.M.) Program, offered by the College of Law in coordination with the National Law Center for Inter-American Free Trade, began enrolling students in the Fall of 1994. The LL.M. Program provides candidates with the theoretical and practical knowledge required to understand current developments in the areas of international trade and commercial law, particularly with regard to Western Hemisphere free trade and economic integration.

    LL.M. candidates must complete a minimum of 24 credit hours for the degree. Approximately one third of the curriculum is devoted to 'core courses in international trade and investment law and international commercial law. Another one third are drawn from the College of Law's general curriculum, in areas such as corporate law, administrative law, antitrust law or environmental law. The final third is derived from direct research and writing at the National Law Center, with students participating in the various legal research, analysis and drafting projects undertaken by the National Law Center. Current projects include the development of an electronic commercial registry; comparison of and suggestions for harmonization of transportation documentation, state environmental legislation and customs procedures; and consideration of common rules for recognition of judgments, among others, all with principal focus on this hemisphere. The Center's methodology contemplates analysis of the various laws and regulations as written, the 'living law' -- how the law operates in practice -- consultation with government and private experts as to what changes are needed, and drafting of new legislation, regulations or uniform rules. LL.M. candidates participate in all aspects of these projects, including on-site research, analysis and writing of reports.

    For additional information on the LL.M. program, including admission information, visit the LLM International Trade and Business Law web site or contact:

    The National Law Center for Inter-American Free Trade

    The National Law Center for Inter-American Free Trade was founded in 1992 and is a non-profit research and educational institution affiliated with The University of Arizona. The Center seeks to develop the legal infrastructure necessary to facilitate the movement of goods, services and investment capital in the Western Hemisphere. The Center conducts comparative legal and transactional studies of the disparate laws, practices and attitudes among countries of the Western Hemisphere desiring to participate in a free trade area. The Center's various projects serve to identify and eliminate the structural legal obstacles to free trade through the harmonization of commercial laws and practice, and the standardization of legal documentation.
