Welcome to the Seattle U Law community! We have created an informative Orientation program that’s designed to:

  • Build foundations for academic success
  • Create a shared understanding of our law school’s values
  • Communicate classroom expectations
  • Convey what it means to enter the legal profession
  • Answer any questions you may have about the law school experience
