Our clinical program is ranked in the top 25 nationally by U.S. News and World Report. Here’s why:
Seattle U Law’s clinic program is renowned and well-respected in part for the combination of student responsibility and faculty support that is the hallmark of the clinic experience we offer to our students.
Seattle U Law’s clinic is named for Ronald A. Peterson, a former member of the university’s faculty for nearly 35 years who passed away in 1998. An attorney by training, he was the first to propose the establishment of a law school at Seattle University. Considered a campus pioneer, he founded the admissions, alumni, and college relations programs and held many teaching and administrative positions during his tenure. He taught in the History Department, the Albers School of Business and Economics, and the Legal Studies Program.
