Arizona Bar Exam Guide

by Lidia Koelbel 10. May 2013 08:29

The PhoenixLaw Library recently published a Guide containing very helpful information on the requirements to acquire a license to practice law in Arizona right after law school.  Access it by clicking here or going to:  http://researchguides.phoenixlaw.edu/AZbarinfo

The Guide has links to the rules that govern Arizona's licensing requirements as well as links to forms, practice questions, and study aids available in the Library to help you prepare for the Uniform Bar Exam.

Further, the Guide explains the Character and Fitness process and the required Multistate Professional Responsibility Exam.  There is also a list with links to email addresses for the Academic Success Department and a description of the Department's myBar Program.

It is never too early to look into what lies ahead after law school.  The better informed you are, the better equipped you will be to handle what can be a very daunting process.

by Lidia Koelbel 1. May 2013 11:08

On April 25, 2013, Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ) introduced the Phoenix Law Review Victim's Rights Issue Volume 5 during a Congressional hearing on the proposed National Victims' Bill of Rights.  You can view the special edition on HeinOnline.

The Phoenix Law Review members worked on this special edition of the journal related to the new proposed national Victim's Rights Amendment.  The law review board also traveled to Washington last April to attend the first of many hearings on the bill.

Phoenix School of Law's Adjunct Professor Steve Twist worked with the Law Review group on the special edition and arranged for them to meet the Arizona delegation to Congress.
