Law Student Life

A one of a kind experience

At UW Law, you’ll find the best of both worlds: a small, tight-knit community with access to the many resources a world-class university and city has to offer. Our community fosters a rare team spirit that permeates the law school and benefits from the diverse backgrounds and perspectives that students bring. Lifelong friendships contribute to an engaged, global alumni network.

Beyond the classroom, students participate in a variety of organizations and activities, and take advantage of Seattle’s outdoor activities and vibrant arts and culture scene.
