As we approach the end of the fiscal year, June 30, we hope you will consider making your gift to the Annual Fund for Excellence by this date to support our students and programs. All donors whose gifts are received by June 22 are invited to join us at A Toast to our Donors, featuring tastings by regional wineries and music by Standard Deviation, featuring Ken Masters ’92.

From Dean Mark Niles

I hope all of you are enjoying summer. I know our May grads had just a minute to celebrate before diving into their bar studies. I congratulate you all and wish you the best of luck on your exams, wherever you are taking them. Please stay in touch with the law school. We know you will achieve great things. Many of our current students are spending their summers completing internships and externships in Seattle or around the country or the world. We also have students enrolled in courses in Alaska and Washington, D.C., and taking part in study abroad programs in South Africa and Guatemala. As always, we are grateful to the alumni who are helping our students and faculty in all these endeavors! I hope to see many of you at a special evening June 22, when we will celebrate our generous donors.
