Phoenix School of Law to move downtown

The Phoenix School of Law is moving three miles south to downtown Phoenix in August. The newly ABA-accredited law school will occupy more than 205,000 square feet and seven floors in a high-rise building at the very heart of the city’s downtown.

“Phoenix School of Law is extremely excited for our move to downtown Phoenix,” said Scott Thompson, President of the school. “This strategic initiative provides the foundation for the next phase of our institution, and will build on the attainment of full accreditation granted last summer by the American Bar Association.”

The new campus will be equipped with state-of-the-art technology, a fully operational mock courtroom, a legal clinic and a law library with an expansive physical collection of legal resources, and a variety of electronic databases. The school will be located one block from the Maricopa County Courthouse.

“Our location in the heart of the legal community and justice system maximizes our students' ability to utilize many resources in the downtown area,” said Shirley Mays, Dean of Phoenix School of Law.

The Phoenix School of Law will be leasing the building for the next 10 years, with an option to extend for an additional five years.
