Benefits for our Alumni

The law school continues to expand its services to alumni. We are never happier than when we hear from our former students! Listed below are some of the benefits used most frequently. If you cannot find what you need, send us an e-mail, and we will do our best to find your solution.

Center for Professional Development

We are eager to hear from alumni who are searching for employment opportunities or who are seeking to fill a position within their firm. Whether you are looking to post an opening in your firm, are interested in making a lateral employment move, or are hoping to relocate to another part of the country, the Center for Professional Development is there to give you a hand.

You might also be interested in the State Work-Study program. About 350 current law students each year are qualified for employment which is subsidized by the state. Through this program, qualified legal employers may hire selected students–with the state reimbursing these legal employers up to 65% of their salaries. Expect to pay from $12 - $20 per hour for 2L and 3L interns. Information about work-study administration is available from the Center for Professional Development work study page or send an e-mail to

Loan Repayment

Consistent with the Seattle University School of Law mission of preparing students who are committed to contributing to the common good by shaping an equitable legal system, Seattle University School of Law established a Loan Repayment Assistance Program (LRAP). The LRAP is designed to assist graduates who choose full time public interest legal careers and are attorneys. Please visit our LRAP Web site for more information regarding the Seattle University School of Law LRAP.

Library and Legal Research

All alumni have lifetime library privileges. Graduates enjoy complete access not only to the print collection, but also to our extensive microfilm and government document collections. Library memberships, which include borrowing privileges, are available, as well. Laptop and notebook computers may be used throughout the library; all carrels and tables in the facility are wired with power and internet access. The library's public terminals provide Internet access as well as access to non-restricted databases. Visit the library Web site.
