Admission Fellows' Law Student Diaries

Seattle University School of Law's Admission Fellows are participating in our online student journals. Since the school year began, these current first and second-year students have been gathering their thoughts and reflections about what it means to be a law student here: from classroom experiences to juggling commitments to making the most of their legal educations.

We invite you to travel through the year with the students as they share not only their confidences and anxieties but also their accomplishments and success strategies. Hear what it's like to be an Seattle University law student, as they candidly express views about not only law school, but also the law generally, and their professional aspirations.

New entries will be available approximately every few weeks as students find time to squeeze their updates into their busy lives.
