The School of Law provides an excellent legal education in congruity with the overall educational mission of Seattle University. Reflecting the Jesuit tradition of academic distinction, we commit ourselves to preparing our students for the highest degree of professional performance. The 21st century presents novel and exciting challenges for legal practitioners, and we are dedicated to anticipating these challenges and educating our students to meet them. Our curriculum, designed with an eye to the future, enables our students to develop the intellectual abilities and practical skills necessary for a full range of career options -- whether they choose to enter solo or large-firm practices, serve as government or public interest lawyers, or use their legal educations to enhance civic leadership or business careers.
