Class of 2009
B.A., International Relations, University of Washington
Associate, Riddell Williams, Seattle
Keith Jang-Hoon Seo left his native Korea for boarding school in Canada in hopes of learning English. He went on to major in Spanish, minor in Japanese and perfect his English in law school. He credits the law school's top-ranked Legal Writing Program and other professors for helping him develop writing skills that have been praised by judges and employers.
"Just seven or eight years ago, my English was terrible, especially my writing," he said.
He worked hard, earned a position on the Law Review and won an award for his writing. Seo, who secured a job with the Seattle law firm Riddell William before graduation, is proud to be a working lawyer at a firm that values community service.
"The Legal Writing Program is top-notch. The quality of the faculty is impressive. The first-year professors really got me interested in the law. For me law school was about justice, but it is also about intellectual challenge and stimulation."
