The 2015 "Best Law Schools" report, released by U.S. News & World Report on March 11, also ranked four of the College's programs among the highest of those programs at all law schools. The College of Law's Legal Method and Writing Program, which is widely considered one of the best in the country was ranked No.8. In addition, the College's Dispute Resolution program had its highest ranking of No.10, and its Health Law and International Law programs were each ranked No.18.  Having four programs ranked in the top 20 puts ASU Law in elite company.  The only ranked law schools that have four or more programs ranked in the top 20 are Harvard, NYU, Georgetown, Stanford, Columbia, UC-Berkeley, and George Washington

"Today's rankings reflect the accomplishments of our faculty and their dedication to making the College of Law an institution that is truly dynamic and focused on rewarding experiences for students," said Dean Douglas Sylvester. "Our school's comprehensive approach to legal education gives our students unparalleled research and practical learning opportunities, and we are exceedingly proud of that."

According to Dean Sylvester, the College of Law will continue to have a superior reputation in multiple areas. "It is our constant innovation and student-centered approach that ensures we will be a top law school. We never rest on past accomplishments and are always asking ourselves what else we can do to improve the student experience and to make an impact on society. This approach has resulted in numerous national awards for students, an amazing average of 250 hours of client contact per graduate, and more than $11 million each year in free legal services provided to Arizona."

In addition to continuing to provide exceptional educational opportunities for students, the College of Law is scheduled to relocate to downtown Phoenix from its current home on the ASU Tempe campus, and move into the Arizona Center for Law & Society (www.arizonacenterforlawandsociety.com) in fall 2016. The building is expected to break ground July 2014. The architecture of the College of Law will reflect the school's passion for innovation, collaboration, and opportunity for its students.

"It's in the best interest of our students to be in the heart of downtown Phoenix," added Dean Sylvester. "To expand student opportunities, it's imperative to be located near the center of the legal, business, and political institutions that drive Arizona."

Dean Sylvester also credits the ranking placement to the accomplishments and credentials of the schools 45th entering class. The College is home to several leading centers and programs such as the Center for Law, Science & Innovation, the Center for Law and Global Affairs, and the Indian Legal Program.
