Gonzaga University School of Law

The Gonzaga University School of Law (also known as Gonzaga Law or GU Law) is one of the professional graduate schools of Gonzaga University, located in Spokane, Washington, USA. Established in 1912, the law school is viewed as a strong institution in the Pacific Northwest, and is the only law school in the State of Washington outside of the Seattle metropolitan area. The school is a private, Jesuit institution, fully accredited by the American Bar Association, and a member of the Association of American Law Schools. Gonzaga Law has also received national recognition as supporting one of the most innovative law school curricula in the U.S. Gonzaga Law was ranked the 58th best law school in the U.S., according to the U.S. News & World Report 2011 survey of highly regarded American law firms, included in U.S. News' 2012 edition of the book "Best Graduate Schools."

The current Gonzaga University School of Law building was completed in May 2000, and is situated on the Spokane River on the southern edge of the Gonzaga University campus, and also contains the large Chastek Law Library. The school's location in Spokane, the largest city in the Inland Northwest, allows students to take advantage of internships with private firms, and government and not-for-profit agencies, along with opportunities with both federal and state judges, as Spokane is home to the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Washington.

Famous quotes containing the words law, school and/or university:

    Here, lads, we live by the law of the taiga. But even here people manage to live. D’you know who are the ones the camps finish off? Those who lick other men’s left-overs, those who set store by the doctors, and those who peach on their mates.
    Alexander Solzhenitsyn (b. 1918)

    By school age, many boys experience pressure to reveal inner feelings as humiliating. They think their mothers are saying to them, “You must be hiding something shameful.” And shucking clams is a snap compared to prying secrets out of a boy who’s decided to “clam up.”
    Ron Taffel (20th century)

    The university must be retrospective. The gale that gives direction to the vanes on all its towers blows out of antiquity.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
