COVID-19 Resources

This is a non-exhaustive list of locally available resources related to the impact of COVID-19 on the Arizona Law community.

Inclusion on this list does not equate to an endorsement of the services or information provided by the listed organization. Please check directly with each organization to verify available services and the latest information, as circumstances, contact information, operating hours, etc. may change.
