Centrally located in the heart of the nation's fifth largest city, and 10 minutes away from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, ASU Law has world-class facilities, an abundance of academic resources, cutting-edge technology, unbeatable weather, and the ideal location for a conference of this magnitude.

The Law School is a short walk from much the leisure and culture our city affords, and a short drive from all the recreation the surrounding land provides. These diverse experiences make ASU Law an ideal location for special guests and speakers who wish to bring their families to make a long weekend out of the Symposium.



 The Greater Phoenix Area hosts more activities than one could hope to enjoy in a single visit. For sports fans, Phoenix is one of only 13 U.S. cities that have a professional team in all four of the major league sports (football, basketball, baseball, and hockey). Phoenix is also home to the Cactus League Spring training which boasts 15 different MLB teams playing at 10 different stadiums around the valley. There are 35 golf courses within a 25-minute drive of Downtown Phoenix. Not the least of these courses is The TPC at Scottsdale, home to the PGA’s Phoenix Open.

Those looking for cultural immersion would do well to visit the collections at the Phoenix Art Museum, check out the exhibits at the Musical Instrument Museum, catch a Broadway show at ASU Gammage, or see the world-renowned architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright at Taliesin West. Additionally, the Scottsdale Fashion Square is the largest mall in Arizona, one of the 25 most visited malls in America, and is only a short drive from campus. While in Scottsdale, be sure to visit the largest aquarium in the southwestern U.S., OdySea Aquarium.

For those who enjoy the great outdoors, Phoenix is home to more than 41,000 acres of desert parks and mountain preserves, and more than 200 miles of trails. Whether it is a simple leisure hike in Papago Park, or a challenging hike with a rewarding view at Camelback Mountain, Phoenix is the place to hit the trails!


A Little North

While in Arizona, attendees may want to see one of the seven wonders of the natural world, the Grand Canyon. Others may enjoy a day trip to Snowbowl to hit the slopes of the Flagstaff Ski Resort. Sedona, with its gorgeous red rocks, is a short, hour-and-a-half drive. Those looking for adventure can hike this serene West Fork Trail or take an off-roading excursion in a Pink Jeep Tour. 


A Little South

Tucson, Arizona’s second largest city, is a short, one-and- a-half-hour drive south of Downtown Phoenix. Before reaching “The Old Pueblo,” stop by the world-famous Biosphere 2 and take one of the daily tours around the one-of-a-kind research center. Attendees can also hike one of thousands of trails all around Saguaro National Park or up the Catalina Mountains to experience the beauty and diversity of the Sonoran Desert. Tucson is also home to the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, which famously hosts over 230 native animal species all around its 98-acre property. If attendees are interested in the history of flight, the Pima Air & Space Museum is the largest privately-funded aerospace museum in the world, and houses over 300 historical aircraft!
