1L Survival Guide

Presented by the Student Bar Association

The 1L Survival Guide is intended to answer the questions most frequently asked by first year students. We highly encourage you to review the information within the Guide and use it as a reference throughout the year. As discussed below, this Guide is merely a compilation of useful information as it existed when the Guide was last compiled; therefore, please realize that some of this information may be out-dated (although we obviously make an effort to keep it updated).

Much of the following information is drawn from various resources, including the Student Handbook, the School of Law Web site and the Seattle University Web site. If you are looking for more detailed information, we suggest you look to those resources.

If you can’t find the information you are looking for in the 1L Survival Guide, please don’t hesitate to ask someone for help. Our law school prides itself on having a very friendly environment and you should find that the students, the staff and the faculty are more than happy to answer your questions.

We hope you enjoy your first year of law school.
