Why Arizona Summit Law School?

Different by Design.

Arizona Summit Law School is new, but more importantly it is different. We are designed and developed by legal educators who recognized the need for a law school that is responsive to the profound changes sweeping through the legal profession.  Our mission is to establish the benchmark of inclusive excellence in professional education for the 21st Century.  Arizona Summit Law School is dedicated to developing the skillset students need to become future leaders.


A legal education may represent the biggest investment you have made in your life.  In recent years, some have questioned the value of a law degree.  The job placement rate, all employment types, for Arizona Summit Law School program graduates from September 1, 2013, through August 31, 2014, was 91%.*  The value of your law degree ultimately lies in your utilization of the resources available to you at Arizona Summit Law School, including:  our innovative Full Integration of Real-life Skills with Teaching (FIRSTclass) Curriculum taught by professors with extensive practice and teaching experience, The Center for Professional Development (CPD), Multi-Year Bar Accelerated Review (myBar), Academic Success and Clinics.

Students also find great value in the diversity of the classroom.  Diversity at Arizona Summit Law School is much broader than the typical definition of diversity.  In addition to the Fall 2014 class profile being approximately 42% diverse, with an average age of 29, they came from very different undergraduate institutions, states, career backgrounds and life experiences.

Location Matters.
