Faculty, students, and staff form a vibrant, diverse, and collaborative community that promotes leadership for a just and humane world.

Innovation, creativity and technological sophistication characterize our rigorous educational program, which prepares lawyers for a wide range of successful and rewarding careers in law, business and public service.
Seattle University, founded in 1891, continues a 450-year tradition of Jesuit Catholic higher education.

Students enjoy a university ethos characterized by individualized faculty attention, a strong sense of community, a commitment to diversity, and an outstanding faculty.
