Benefits for Alumni

Seattle University School of Law treasures our alumni and we are pleased to offer benefits and programs designed to further your legal career and continue your involvement with the law school.

Center for Professional Development

CPD services are available to law school alumni, and include access to job postings, resume and cover letter review, career counseling, and mock interviews. CPD staff serve alumni through in-person, phone, or e-mail contact. Please visit the alumni section of the CPD site.

Loan Repayment

Consistent with the School of Law's mission to prepare students committed to service in the public interest, the law school operates a Loan Repayment Assistance Program (LRAP) to assist law graduates who choose full-time public interest legal careers. For more information on this important program, visit our LRAP Web site.

Attorney and nationally recognized expert Heather Jarvis presented "Managing Your Student Loan Debt and Focusing on What Matters" at a recent program in Sullivan Hall. View her presentation on our Media Law site.

Sidebar Happy Hour Series

Visit the Alumni Events and Programs page to learn about upcoming dates for our Sidebar Happy Hours. Organized throughout Puget Sound and regionally, these social events provide an opportunity for you to connect with alumni, friends, and the law school.

Library and Legal Research Resources

All law alumni have access to the law library catalog, in-house use of library materials and e- mail reference services. The library's public computer terminals provide internet access and access to non-restricted databases. An alumni membership is available for $25, which entitles the holder to one year of borrowing privileges. For additional information visit the library website.

Order a Transcript

Do you need a transcript for a job application, a bar application, or personal reasons? The Registrar's Office is pleased to provide one for you, normally within 48 hours. The cost for official transcripts is $5. You can request a transcript via e-mail from your SU account only, or you can download the order form online and fax or mail it to the law school.

Complimentary Course Audits

Our law graduates may audit up to a total of six credit hours of law school classes free of charge. Course enrollment is on a space-available basis and subject to instructor's approval. In some cases the Washington State Bar Association grants CLE credits for such enrollment. For more information and to access the application, visit the Alumni Credits and Audit information page at
