ASU eyes law school move to Phoenix

ASU eyes law school move to PhoenixArizona State University has decided to relocate the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law from the Tempe campus to downtown Phoenix.

The Arizona Republic reports that university officials made public its plans this week at a Phoenix city council subcommittee meeting.

School officials also announced plans to build a six-story, $120 million facility.

University officials say they hope to open the Arizona Center for Law and Society in 2016, but they need to overcome a few more hurdles before they finalize the deal. Phoenix would initially provide the land, a block near Polk and First streets, for free for the first 10 years and contribute $12 million to the project, but the city must still approve the plan.

The project will cost ASU $100 million to $120 million.
