In addition to the vibrant, growing downtown area where Arizona Summit Law School (Summit) is located, you’ll find everything under the sun that’s fun in metropolitan Phoenix. With more than 325 days of sunshine each year, great weather creates numerous opportunities for outdoor recreation, sightseeing, shopping, dining and nightlife.
Commuting throughout the area is easy on the Valley Metro Light Rail system. With a stop just a block from the school and others all across the downtown area and city, you can get to where you’re going in a way that’s fun, fast and affordable.
