Basic Information

University of Arizona is the best value option in the state, having cut tuition for non-residents by more than 30 percent, from $42,000 down to $29,000. In-state tuition is $24,500. It is also the top school for practical training in the region. The National Jurist gave it a B+ for clinics, externships and simulation courses.

“I think [it] was especially true a decade ago [that] great law schools had more similarities than differences,” said Dean Marc Miller. “Not that it didn’t matter which school you went to, but there was more of a common core. I think that’s changed.”

University of Arizona grads record the highest bar pass rate in the region — 91.49 percent passed the 2013 exam. And a new initiative allows Arizona students to take the exam in their last semester of law school.

“They walk the stage already knowing they’re lawyers,” Miller said. “It can give them a competitive advantage. We restructured the curriculum for them in the last semester, so when they’re studying for the bar, they’re not taking other classes and special February bar courses are open to all students.”

The law school now accepts GRE scores in lieu of LSAT scores.
