Seattle University School of Law

Fighting finals stress with a friend
Remember the stress of law school finals? This year, the Student Bar Association organized a "De-Stress With Dogs" event so pooches like Luna the Great Dane and Luka the lab could visit and snuggle the stress away.

Three students receive fellowships
Marisa Ordonia '14 received the law school's Leadership for Justice Fellowship to work with incarcerated youth. Quinn Dennehy '14 received Harvard's prestigious Zuckerman Fellowship to study education, and Fatima Dilek '14 was named a Presidential Management Fellow in federal government.

Unjust arrest led to law school
Phil Chinn used to fight the establishment by blocking military vehicles at ports throughout Puget Sound. Now he's working for social justice from a different angle. Read all about how Chinn's frightening experience with government surveillance led him to Seattle University School of Law.

Perfect your practice with a CLE
Our Summer Practice Academy features can't-miss courses on legal writing, health law, and Indian law. Now we're offering a special price for recent alumni to attend the Advanced Trial Advocacy Institute. Get ready for your next big trial at our academy!

Advancement leader joins law school
The law school welcomes Patricia McCowan as the new Chief Advancement Officer. She's a skillful leader with 28 years of experience, and she'll work to strengthen relationships with alumni and reach out to potential donors for support of the law school's mission.

Lawyers of Color honors Martin
Associate Professor Natasha Martin was named to Lawyers of Color's "50 under 50" list of influential minority law professors. An expert in employment discrimination and professional responsibility, Martin has served the past two years as associate dean for research and faculty development.

May 2014

Annette Clark From Dean Annette Clark

Commencement is just around the corner, and I look forward to saluting our wonderful graduates at the graduation ceremony on May 17. Among our 2014 graduates are fellows, federal and state court clerks, law firm associates, and others who will serve the legal community in myriad ways. I look to you, our alumni, to assist our students and future alumni who are still searching for jobs. Our alumni have a wealth of talent and broad experience, which benefits not only their clients and colleagues, but the law school as well. Please contact our Center for Professional Development if you're hiring or have other ideas about ways to support our alumni.

I also hope our alumni will take advantage of the tremendous opportunities available through our new and innovative Summer Practice Academy. You can enhance your practice and sharpen your skills while earning significant CLE credits and certificates in trial advocacy, legal writing, Indian law, or health law. Alumni receive a special discount on these in-depth and interactive programs.

Congratulations to 2014 graduates joining the ranks of our alumni!
