Law Student Diaries
Several Seattle University School of Law students are participating in our online student journals. Since the school year began, they have been gathering their thoughts and reflections about what it means to be a law student here: from classroom experiences to juggling commitments to making the most of their legal educations.
We invite you to travel through the year with the students as they share not only their confidences and anxieties but also their accomplishments and success strategies. Hear what it's like to be an Seattle University law student, as they candidly express views about not only law school, but also the law generally, and their professional aspirations.
New entries will be available approximately every few weeks as students find time to squeeze their updates into their busy lives.
Amber Campbell ’19
Amber was born and raised in Georgia, where she earned a BA in English and Women’s Studies from Wesleyan College, while also playing soccer. After graduation, she moved to Scottsdale, Arizona and spent five years working and soaking up the sun. At Seattle U Law, she hopes to follow her interest in intellectual property and get out of the heat.
Dominic Woolery ’19
Dominic grew up in Tacoma, Washington and attended Washington State University where he majored in Political Science and minored in English. Dominic decided to follow in the footsteps of his mother and sister, who are both alumni of Seattle U Law. He loves to watch and play basketball when he’s not too busy with school and is a big fan of WSU cougar football.
Joe Wright ’19
Joe is from Oregon originally but went to Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania and lived there for a year before moving to Seattle four years ago. Joe worked as a labor union organizer after college which sparked his interest in law as a vehicle for a more just and equitable society. He hopes to use his degree in low to make a positive difference in society.
Stefanie Young ’19
Stefanie is from Hong Kong and attended Occidental College in Los Angeles. She has a BA in Psychology and minored in Kinesiology. She also played four years of collegiate basketball. Stefanie is inspired and motivated to make an impact within mental health law and family law.
Kristin Bateman ’18
After living and studying all over the United States and in the UK, I am thrilled to be back in my hometown Seattle, studying law at Seattle University. My path has not been a traditional one — before coming to law school, I enjoyed an active career as a flutist, orchestral musician, and teacher. Having changed my focus in such a dramatic way is both exciting and scary, but I am looking forward to using my studies and eventual legal career to enrich and benefit the Seattle community I missed so much while I was away. At Seattle U, I look forward to exploring my interests in environmental law, arts law, and intellectual property.
Steven Pray ’18
I grew up in Kent, Washington, just a short drive down I-5 from Seattle. I moved to Ellensburg to attend Central Washington University after I graduated from high school. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and a minor in Law and Justice. I was fortunate enough to get an internship at a local law office during my last year of college. This sparked my interest in family law and the legal profession in general. I feel so privileged to be able to start my journey here at the Seattle University School of Law. When I'm not studying or attending class I like to take adventures with my friends around Seattle.
