The University of Arizona James E. Rogers College of Law, the oldest law school in Arizona and one of the first established in the west, was founded in 1915 as part of the College of Letters, Arts, and Sciences at the University of Arizona. In 1925, the College of Law was established as the fifth college. The law school has developed a high-quality academic program that prepares lawyers for leadership and service throughout the state and country and internationally.
The law school’s curriculum encompasses theoretical materials and diverse clinical programs affording students experience with actual cases and clients. Of particular note are the school’s two specialized post JD legal degree programs in areas of international significance, including a program of advanced study of the international and domestic implications of the rapid economic and legal changes confronting indigenous peoples globally and a program involving the multiple legal dimensions of free trade expansion between the US and Latin, Central, and South America. In addition, joint degrees in many fields, including business, philosophy, psychology, women’s studies, and Latin American studies, are also available.
With a collection of more than 400,000 volumes and access to a host of legal and law-related online databases, the University of Arizona James E. Rogers College of Law Library plays a vital role in fulfilling the college’s dual mission of teaching and research.

Harrison Barnes is the legal profession's mentor and may be the only person in your legal career who will tell you why you are not reaching your full potential and what you really need to do to grow as an attorney--regardless of how much it hurts. If you prefer truth to stagnation, growth to comfort, and actionable ideas instead of fluffy concepts, you and Harrison will get along just fine. If, however, you want to stay where you are, talk about your past successes, and feel comfortable, Harrison is not for you.
Truly great mentors are like parents, doctors, therapists, spiritual figures, and others because in order to help you they need to expose you to pain and expose your weaknesses. But suppose you act on the advice and pain created by a mentor. In that case, you will become better: a better attorney, better employees, a better boss, know where you are going, and appreciate where you have been--you will hopefully also become a happier and better person. As you learn from Harrison, he hopes he will become your mentor.
