About Us

We Prepare Great Leaders Who Are:

  • Grounded in tradition.
  • Diverse and distinguished.
  • Immersed in law and policy.
  • Ethical and informed.


What began as the University of Puget Sound School of Law in a business park on South Tacoma Way has become Seattle University School of Law, the largest and most diverse law school in the Northwest, committed to educating outstanding lawyers who are leaders for a just and humane world. With the 2017–18 academic year, the law school marked its 45th anniversary. Though much has changed since our early days, the pride we have in our alumni has never wavered. Our graduates, numbering well over 10,000, are leaders for change, working in every state and around the world in all areas of the law, business, education, the judiciary, and public service.

As we continue to grow our online programs, we are paving the way to provide the opportunity for more students across the U.S. to join our alumni legacy.
