Lost and Found

Did you know that the law school has a Lost and Found for items found at the law school?  Please visit the dean’s administrative suite (Room 101) to check for any lost items or to leave any found items with our staff.

Unclaimed items are periodically forwarded on to UA’s main lost and found which is located at the UA police department (map). From there, items not claimed after 90 days may be donated to charity, destroyed or distributed for departmental use.
