The William H. Gates Public Service Law Program

The William H. Gates Public Service Law Program enhances the environment at the University of Washington School of Law in two key ways. The program awards five scholarships on an annual basis to first year students entering the UW School of Law J.D. program who are willing to commit to practicing a minimum of five years in a public service law setting after graduation. This enables students who might not otherwise be able to afford law school or to choose a lower paying public service position after law school the opportunity to attend a top notch educational institution. The program also provides a breadth and depth of programming about public service/public interest practices that brings in a diverse series of speakers on a wide range of topics.
