PHOENIX (AP) - Arizona State University officials say its Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law has its largest class ever with 400 students.

They say Juris Doctor candidates comprise 230 of the students with various master’s-level programs accounting for the rest.

The candidates come from 97 undergraduate universities, 39 states and four countries.

Their undergraduate degrees come from a wide range of study areas including pre-med, accounting, economics, biochemistry, mathematics, business administration, international studies, chemical engineering, environmental sciences and finance.

ASU officials say its law school has an 85 percent passage rate for the State Bar. That’s better than the national average of 73 percent.

They say ASU also ranks in the top 20 of all accredited law schools in placing graduates in real lawyer jobs.
