Seattle University School of Law is home to an outstanding faculty of committed teacher-scholars. Our professors do not choose between scholarship and teaching, but rather are experts in their fields who are drawn to share their knowledge with students.
A primary mission that drives the academic program is the faculty’s desire to prepare students to practice the law with competence, honor and commitment to public service. Our talented faculty members teach students to analyze problems and construct policy arguments, as well as train them to write and speak with clarity and precision. The faculty aspire to foster the finest qualities of leadership and service: clear and critical thinking, effective communication, wise judgment, ethical behavior and a charitable spirit.
The teaching is both demanding and humane. It blends legal theory, doctrinal analysis and comprehensive practical-skills training. Reflecting the Jesuit tradition of open inquiry, social responsibility, and concern for personal growth, the law school values freedom of conscience, thought and speech.
