June 28, 2012

Daniel Lee was one of two students in the country to receive a $10,000 Law Student Diversity Scholarship from DRI. The scholarships go to law students who best demonstrate excellence, service to the profession, service to the community, and service to the cause of diversity.

A 3L, Daniel serves as editor-in-chief of Seattle University Law Review. Daniel received the 1L Diversity Fellowship and worked as a 2011 summer associate at Perkins Coie LLP. During summer 2012, he is working at Stoel Rives in the Environmental Litigation practice group.

Prior to law school, Daniel taught math, art, and reading at a school in Bellevue, Wash., and worked with a non-profit that seeks to bring technology and training to teachers in rural China. Although native to Seattle, Daniel has lived in Texas, as well as California, where he received his B.A. in English from Stanford University.

DRI is the largest international membership organization of attorneys defending the interests of business and individuals in civil litigation.
