Programs and centersEdit
In addition to the J.D. program, the school offers L.L.M. and S.J.D. degrees in Indigenous Peoples Law and Policy, and International Trade and Business Law. The International Trade and Business Law program is offered in coordination with the National Law Center for Inter-American Free Trade. Students finishing their L.L.M. degree in either program may continue on to an S.J.D. degree after completing substantial original research in their field of study. Arizona Law also offers a two-year J.D. with Advanced Standing (J.D.A.S.), designed for students who have received their first law degree from a university outside the United States. This two-year J.D. provides up to one year's worth of credits (or 29 units) for non-U.S. legal studies, effectively allowing admitted students to skip the second year of law school and go directly from completing the traditional first-year curriculum to the third year of law school.
