In addition to the traditional emphasis on doctrine, critical thinking, and writing skills, we impart real world experience. By focusing on the practical skills and methodologies of law practice, we help prepare our students to be effective lawyers and give them a head start in legal practice.
School Mission and Values:
PhoenixLaw aims to establish itself as one of the region‘s and nation‘s premier sources of professionally prepared graduates. Toward these ends, the institution is grounded in processes that enable it to decisively and nimbly move toward its objectives; adapt to changing markets; establish and facilitate best practices in teaching, mentoring, and other activities; and function on the basis of positive group dynamics.
PhoenixLaw‘s mission is based upon three primary pillars: 1) an educational experience that is student-centered; 2) outcome-driven programs and performances that yield professionally-prepared graduates; and 3) a commitment to serving underserved communities. These cornerstones reflect a sense that legacy and benchmark status is dependent upon the capacity to respond positively and effectively to change in the legal profession and the market for legal education.
PhoenixLaw has consciously structured and defined itself on the basis of some significant differentiations. PhoenixLaw sets itself apart on the basis of its culture; a student-centered orientation, an educational experience that prepares students for the practice of law, service to underserved communities, and the faculty‘s accountability for market-leading student outcomes.
These distinguishing characteristics aim toward establishing PhoenixLaw as a benchmark institution for legal education in the 21st century. PhoenixLaw encourages prospective students, in gauging their interest in attending PhoenixLaw, to reflect upon these institutional traits and the implications for their roles and responsibilities.
