The Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law reinvents the traditional law school experience through the construction of a new, modern facility, the Beus Center for Law and Society, in the heart of downtown Phoenix. The relocation of the law school to this area of Arizona State University’s downtown campus provides beneficial programmatic adjacencies to the Phoenix legal and criminal justice community and unique opportunities to advance the College’s pedagogical mission. The Beus Center for Law and Society is designed to act as an institutional change agent, dedicated to educating students and citizens on the importance of the law in shaping civil society. The six-story, 260,000-square-foot state-of-the-art facility, designed by Tomas Rossant of Ennead Architects in collaboration with Jones Studio, repositions the law school as a conduit for connecting the school’s progressive legal scholarship with its commitment to the community by providing services like a public interest law clinic and the nation’s first not-for-profit teaching law firm.
