Statement regarding transparency
Seattle University School of Law is committed to transparency in reporting employment data. We participate along with 39 other law schools in supporting Law School Transparency (LST), a nonprofit legal education policy organization dedicated to promoting access to consumer information about law school.
You may have seen accounts of possible litigation against law schools across the nation over employment statistics. Please be aware that LST Executive Director Kyle McEntee recently credited Seattle University School of Law, along with five other law schools nationally, as doing a "good job" of disclosing job placement information.
I encourage you to visit our website and review our employment statistics. Our Center for Professional Development has nearly completed the 2011 statistics. I also encourage you to visit the LST website, which provides extensive information about the disclosure policies of schools across the nation.
If you have questions or concerns, I encourage you to contact me, our admissions office, or the Center for Professional Development. Thank you.
