Legacy of Leadership

Court Justices

Gonzaga Law has a profound Legacy of Leadership within the regional law community. Gonzaga Law alums currently make up one third of the Washington State Supreme Court. A large percentage of the judges, prosecutors, and trial lawyers in the Spokane region are Gonzaga Law graduates. For students, this provides a deep connection with those who have walked these halls before them. From internships, to mentor programs, to post-graduation employment, our active alumni base stays committed to serving and training each new generation of practitioners.

Why Gonzaga Law can have a profound impact on your life.

“At a young age I discovered the ability to make a difference in the community by seeing my father, a Clark County Commissioner, take action. He instilled in me a passion for public service. I also learned that I needed to be better prepared to advocate for underrepresented or vulnerable populations and defend them from criminals. It was heartbreaking to see my grandparents become targets of fraud. Elder protection became my first priority as Attorney General, and I worked with legislative partners to strengthen laws against elder abuse in Nevada.”

-US Senator Catherine Cortez-Masto (’90)
