Seattle University School of Law's Alaska program offers a path for aspiring lawyers to study the state's compelling legal issues while experiencing its astounding physical landscape.

Our program appeals to all law students at any ABA-accredited law school in the country who want to:

  • Prepare to return home to practice law or simply spend a portion of law school in their home state
  • Get to know Alaska as a potential professional destination

Learn more about spending your summer in Alaska or finding an externship or internship there.

Please note: Alaska Pacific University, which hosts our Alaska Law Campus, is closed for the summer of 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Students who have already arranged internships or externships with employers in Alaska should continue to work with their site supervisors to determine the feasibility of their summer placements in light of the closure orders in place across the state.
