"I applied to Arizona Law because I was impressed with its reputation for helping graduates find jobs that actually require a JD, and because it has a fantastic student-to-professor ratio.

But with such an important decision at stake, I wasn’t completely convinced until I visited the campus. Arizona Law is a famously collegial law school, but you don’t fully appreciate what that means until you experience it firsthand. It’s a different atmosphere than I expected to find at a top-tier law school.

That first impression has held true throughout my time here. For instance, when I missed class because my son was sick, I had class notes waiting in my inbox from three different classmates before I even had a chance to ask! I am grateful every day that I chose to come here. Frankly, I couldn't imagine going anywhere else!”
