Student Ambassador Council

The UW School of Law is proud to have some of the brightest and most promising future lawyers studying here in Seattle. While all of our students lead busy lives inside and outside of the classroom, our SAC Members are willing to answer questions, offer candid advice, share their law school experiences, and help students navigate the challenges of adjusting to law school. Their primary goal is to help ensure that prospective and admitted students have all of the information they need to have a positive and productive law school experience.

Feel free to contact one of our ambassadors if you are interested in learning more about their decision to attend UW School of Law.
