Why Gonzaga Law?

The Gonzaga Law Difference

It begins with a team of distinguished professors who prepare graduates to become accomplished writers who can deliver creative and meaningful solutions. We’ll prepare you with the skills needed to succeed in and out of the classroom. This journey will lead you to your own place in the world, following in the footsteps of the many justices, judges, advocates and leaders that have gone before.

Our Jesuit teaching culture offers early hands-on training with students volunteering hundreds of hours of practical experience with real clients, working alongside seasoned attorneys. We believe the courtroom is a powerful classroom. Gonzaga Law graduates have a reputation for being tenacious competitors in the courtroom.
