Update: ASU Law School Moving to Downtown Phoenix

Based off of web traffic our previous post on Arizona State University moving their law school to downtown Phoenix, Arizona was one of the most popular posts we've ever had. It seems like there's a lot of interest in the project. If all goes according to plan construction will begin in May 2014 and should be completed by mid 2016.

Below are pictures I took of what the future law school's location currently looks like. I tried to mark the parking lot in red.



Below are some other pictures that I took of the Civic Space Park. The park sits just one block away from the future law school.

Demolition of the Bridge Connecting BYU's Main Campus and the Law School

Online LLM in Tax

I've been kicking around the idea of earning an LLM in taxation. However, I don't want to leave Phoenix and so I'm researching what law schools offer online LLM's. So far I've only found four schools that offer LLM's in tax completely online; New York University, Boston University, University of Alabama, and Denver University.

Are there any schools that I'm missing? Any opinions about the value of an LLM in tax? Also, what's BYU's deal with not offering any LLM's to Americans? It could be a real cash-cow for the school.

BYU Law School Fellowship Program

FYI:

The J. Reuben Clark Law School at Brigham Young University is seeking applicants for the BYU Law School Fellowship Program, commencing in the Fall 2013 Semester. A successful applicant will have a J.D. degree, an outstanding academic background, a commitment to producing influential and enduring scholarship, and a devotion to high quality teaching. Applicants may contact D. Gordon Smith directly.
The BYU Law School Fellowship Program is intended to provide promising law graduates who are preparing to enter the market for tenure-track teaching positions with an opportunity to gain teaching experience and to make substantial progress on their personal scholarly projects. Fellows will be appointed for a one-year term that is renewable for a maximum of one additional year, with the expectation that the Fellow will participate in the Association of American Law Schools faculty recruitment process during the fall of their second year. During their appointment, Fellows will teach one course each semester. The courses will be selected based on the professional goals of the Fellow and the needs of the school. Fellows will have the opportunity to participate fully in the intellectual life of the law school, including faculty workshops and conferences. It is expected that Fellows will complete one scholarly article in the first year of residence and make substantial progress on a second piece during the second year. Fellows will have at least one opportunity to present a paper in the faculty workshop series and, more generally, to receive mentoring from faculty members in preparation for the academic job market. 
Fellows will receive a $50,000 stipend, health benefits, an office, secretarial support, and some funding for research support and travel.
Preference is given to qualified candidates who are members in good standing of the affiliated church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Employment at BYU requires observance of Church standards.
