The Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law at Arizona State University: 1965 to 2020

Author Gary Stuart tells the important story of how a small but committed group of inaugural faculty created a law school out of the ether. A law school that over the next 50 years would become a national leader on legal and educational reform. Stuart describes the book, “A story about launching a legacy-fifty years in the making, one lawyer at a time.” His book is a clear and cohesive account of the importance and need for the rule of law, advanced by well-trained lawyers, thoughtful judges, and legal scholars. This book is chock full of facts and heretofore-undisclosed history. More than 8,000 students have graduated in the last fifty years. Today, in its new home, the Beus Center for Law & Society, in downtown Phoenix, the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law fosters collaboration among ASU, the bench and bar, and all facets of industry, helping make Phoenix the fastest-growing and most innovative-friendly city in the country. As the book makes clear, there truly is not another law school in the world like the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law.
