Opportunities for Involvement

Job Shadow Program

The law school's Job Shadow Program gives law students a firsthand look at the legal world outside the classroom. Alumni volunteers are vital to its success!

If you are interested in hosting a job shadow, please be in touch with the Advancement Office at lawalumni@seattleu.edu.

Admission Ambassadors

The Alumni Ambassador program allows admitted students to contact graduates with questions about their law school experiences and the legal profession. Email lawalumni@seattleu.edu to sign up.

1L Mentorship Program

The goal of the Seattle University School of Law 1L Alumni Mentorship Program is to provide law students with the leadership and professional tools they will need to succeed in law school and thrive afterward as they prepare for the bar exam and their legal careers.

This structured program combines specific strategies and key resources to promote a successful mentoring relationship. We expect that this mentorship program will be as beneficial to mentors as it will be to mentees. As a mentor, your commitment to advancing the cause of professionalism is a credit to you, and your mentoring relationship will be a source of knowledge and inspiration for years to come. 

The program kicks off each year in January and ends in December of the same year. Our hope with the one-year program structure is that your relationships will continue over the summer, through summer internships/externships, and into the fall.  In addition, the program will provide both mentor and mentee with a structured mentorship guide that will include topics and resources for review prior to each meeting.  We do not expect this time commitment to average more than two or three hours per month unless you and your mentee agree to meet more often. 

If you would like to participate, please contact the Advancement Office at lawalumni@seattleu.edu
