Why Your Support Matters


A note from Dean Douglas Sylvester

Your support is crucial to the success of our students and the legal community. Proceeds will go to benefit the students at ASU through direct scholarships and by strengthening programming. The average cost of law school has skyrocketed over the last decade. Tuition at ASU is high — costing $26,000 for in-state and $40,000 for out-of-state. However, we have not raised tuition since 2011 and, with your support, we hope we can avoid raising it again in the future. In addition, students at ASU are fortunate — our tuition remains in the bottom 50 percent of all law schools while we enjoy a Top 30 ranking, boast far higher than national-average employment outcomes, and have some of the best teachers and researchers in the country. This year’s auction is one small step in making law school more affordable. We will continue to do all we can---and hope you will as well. See you at the auction!
