As the world emerges from the pandemic and faces threats to the environment and the stability of economies and democracies worldwide, graduates of the UW Law Graduate (LLM and MJ) Program in Sustainable International Development are the problem solvers who will help navigate these challenges. Our students focus on legal and policy strategies and tools to balance sustainable economic development with the well-being of communities, the rights of individuals, and the health of the planet. Key areas of focus include:
The program offers dynamic experiential and externship opportunities in partnership with local and international organizations. Our graduates are prepared to work with international development organizations, governments, non-governmental organizations, law firms, humanitarian and human rights organizations, environmental NGOs, and active military service focused on the rule of law. The program is also equipping a new generation of lawyers to work with social entrepreneurs and corporations to develop sustainable solutions to pressing social challenges.
Some scholarship support may be available directly through the SID program or through the Barer Institute for Law and Global Human Services.

The Washington State Bar Association is partnering with the American Bar Association and Baylor University on a survey about the provision of legal services to persons of limited means. This survey will gather information on the experiences and perceptions of pro bono/low bono work, the barriers to pro bono and low bono services, shifts in volunteering since the COVID-19 pandemic, and other important data that will help inform the WSBA’s pro bono and public service programming. If you would like to read the results of the previous survey conducted in 2018, please click here.
Please help us distribute this survey with your networks and members so we can help understand how WSBA can best promote a culture of service, reduce barriers to pro bono volunteering, and expand access to justice. We have suggested language below for your convenience.
