Seattle University School of Law educates ethical lawyers who distinguish themselves through their outstanding professional skills and their dedication to law in the service of justice. Faculty, students, and staff form a vibrant, diverse, and collaborative community that promotes leadership for a just and humane world. The Law School’s commitment to academic distinction is grounded in its Jesuit Catholic tradition, one that encourages open inquiry, thoughtful reflection and concern for personal growth. Innovation, creativity and technological sophistication characterize our rigorous educational program, which prepares lawyers for a wide range of successful and rewarding careers in law, business and public service.
ATJI serves as the law school’s social justice hub, inspiring, promoting and supporting: transformative and active community engagement by the law school community in the service of justice for marginalized and underserved communities; bridge- building between academics and action to help eliminate unfair and oppressive systems and practices; community-building with those individuals and community groups who share a commitment to justice for all; and leadership development and capacity building of the next generation of social justice lawyers.
Together with the ATJI team, the Associate Director is a vital team member who will strive to accomplish the goal of inspiring law students, wherever their career paths take them, to make a lifelong commitment to equal justice for marginalized or underserved communities. In collaboration with the Director of ATJI, develop a strategic plan and oversee activities and trainings that drive the mission to provide community engagement opportunities for students.
