School of Law

At Seattle U Law we know that lawyering is a profession and a privilege that comes with responsibilities, including to lead, to educate, and to seek justice. We believe in free speech, the vigorous exchange of ideas and debate, and that education when done well can bring light to darkness and build bridges of understanding and respect across difference.

 

When it comes to education, the classroom environment is one of the most important factors affecting student learning.

 

Think about it: In 1999, when we moved into Sullivan Hall, law students used floppy disks during law school finals. The law school gave incoming 1Ls a paper planner. CD-ROMs were used for research, and Wi-Fi didn’t exist. A lot has changed at the law school in the 19 years since, but not our classroom chairs. The chairs are far past their useful life and squeak every time someone shifts, distracting students and faculty who are engaged in the classroom learning enterprise.

 

During Seattle U Gives, you have an opportunity to help bring our students further into the 21st century by supporting them through classroom improvements, scholarships, and hands-on educational experiences that offer students the skills and confidence to find success in law school, the bar exam, and their careers. Give our students a supportive seat at the table, and help Seattle U Law educate the next generation of powerful advocates for justice.

 

Our Goal

 

Our first priority is to replace the 60 chairs in Sullivan Hall classroom 109/110. Our hope is we will have 60 alumni support this classroom effort and help build the future for 60 students during Seattle U Gives.

 

No matter the size or designation, your support makes a difference for our students.
