    About the College of Law

    Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law is the law school at Arizona State University located in Tempe, Arizona. The law school is approved by the American Bar Association and opened in 1964. The law school was renamed after retired U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor in 2006.

    The Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law was ranked 51st nationally by U.S. News and World Report in 2007. The College of Law is frequently ranked as one of the top 10 legal writing schools in the nation.

    The College of Law not only offers a J.D. Degree, but also offers several hybrid degrees including J.D./M.D. (The M.D. is awarded by Mayo Medical School), J.D./Ph.D in Law and Psychology, J.D./M.B.A., and J.D./Ph.D in Justice Studies. The College of Law also offers a two year M.L.S. (Masters of Legal Studies).

    It also provides certificate J.D. Programs for Indian Law, Law Science and Technology, and International Law. Clinical programs include Civil Justice Clinic, Criminal Practice Clinic, Immigration Clinic, Indian Legal Clinic, Mediation Clinic, Public Defender Clinic, and Technology Ventures.

    History of the College

    In 1964, the Arizona Board of Regents approved the establishment of a law school at Arizona State.

    University. ASU President Homer Durham launched a search for a dean for the school, wishing to find a 'different kind'? of person to serve as the first dean. His search led him to Willard H. Pedrick, a highly respected law professor at Northwestern Law School.

    After several trips to Arizona, Pedrick accepted Durham's offer to be the first dean in 1965.

    Pedrick needed to build a faculty and did so by looking to the law schools he admired, searching for the innovative faculty that he wanted for the new school. By 1966, he had assembled a fine group of scholars and leaders: William Canby, Edward W. Cleary, Richard Dahl, Richard Effland, and Harold Havighurst.

    Founding Faculty: Effland, Dahl, Havighurst, Pedrick, Canby, & Cleary.

    Late in the summer of 1967, Willard H. Pedrick and the six well-respected faculty welcomed the inaugural class of 117 students. The class was diverse for the times, including women, Blacks, and Native Americans. While the law school building was being constructed, classes were held in the Old Matthews Library near the center of the ASU campus.
