The Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law at Arizona State University
is honored to recognize and say "Thanks" to the following law firms as being a top supporter of ASU Law through hiring of our graduates and an exemplar law firm in Arizona.

The Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law at Arizona State University has been fortunate since its founding in 1967 to have the support of the legal community alongside us, helping our students fulfill their dreams to pursue a profession in law. We want to recognize the following law firms who have employed our graduates throughout the years.

ASU Law’s seventh annual Gold ’n Gavel Auction and Reception will take place on Friday, November 15, at the Beus Center for Law and Society on the ASU campus in downtown Phoenix. Along with the law firms mentioned above, ASU Law is committed to being a positive force in the community, and believe we can help lead the way to a better future. This year’s theme is “THANKS,” and the evening promises to be a night to remember as we say “thank you” to those who have helped strengthen ASU Law’s impact in our community. Together we will celebrate our achievements and, in the process, raise critical funds for our unique programs and student scholarships.
