Welcome Class of 2012
The doors opened at the law school on September 14 to our newest class of law students.
The Class of 2012 is composed of 182 students representing more than 90 undergraduate schools. The class includes 100 men (55%) and 82 women (45%), reversing a trend over the past few years where first-year women outnumbered men. More than 100 of the incoming students (57%) are Washington state residents, and 20% percent have graduate degrees.
The 1Ls arrived two weeks prior to the official start of school to attend Foundations of Legal Studies, an intense orientation course, designed to bring all incoming students onto a more level playing field.
