Arizona State Law Journal seeks to promote development of the law by publishing scholarly articles on timely legal issues. To this end, Journal provides a forum for legal scholars and practitioners, a resource for use in their work, and an opportunity for students at the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law to engage in legal research and commentary.


We are excited to announce we are now posting case briefs of Arizona Supreme Court decisions—starting from August 2017.

These case briefs are categorized between civil, criminal, constitutional, family, and juvenile law. They are also categorized by the justice who wrote the opinion. The case briefs include a brief factual background, procedural history, issues, holdings, disposition, rule, and reasoning as well as any concurrences or dissents.

We hope that you enjoy this new addition to the Arizona State Law Journal website!
