University of Washington School of Law
The University of Washington School of Law is committed to excellence in teaching, scholarship, and public service.
The teaching - emphasizing small classes and an accessible faculty - provides a solid foundation in legal doctrine, research skills, and lawyering skills through clinical and simulated programs. The curriculum also develops jurisprudential, interdisciplinary, comparative, and multicultural perspectives on law and legal institutions. The School capitalizes on the resources of other academic units of the University and the unique opportunities of the Pacific Northwest to offer graduate programs which also enhance the J.D.program in Asian and Comparative Law, Tax Law, Law of Sustainable International Development, Law Librarianship, and concentration tracks in Dispute Resolution, Asian Law, International and Comparative Law, Environmental Law, Health Law and Intellectual Property Law. Under consideration is the development of training and research programs in Native American Legal Studies and Intellectual Property Law.
