Class of 2018 Heads to Law School!

Now that the dust has settled from commencement, grad parties, and those first gorgeous days of summer… isn’t it time to think about going back to school??
Meet three of PPPA’s Class of 2018 who are heading to law school this fall.

Gabi Gutierrez, ’18

Gabi Gutierrez, a¬†Law & Policy major with a minor in Human Rights, will be attending the University of Washington Law School, with a major focus in Public Service Law. “Although I am extremely grateful for the time I had at the University of Washington Tacoma, I feel like I have even more vigor to practice law. If you are interested in following a career in the legal field, I would highly recommend taking the time to explore the law through internships or volunteering. I’m extremely grateful to have interned for the Department of Assigned Counsel and to have developed supportive relationships with faculty members, because without my experience I would have never discover my true desire to practice criminal law.”


Oscar Trinidad, ’18

Trinidad, a double-major in Criminal Justice and Politics, Philosophy, and Economics, will be attending Seattle University in the dual JD/Masters in Criminal Justice program. “I look forward to the challenges of doing both law school and grad school at the same time! From there, I hope to practice law and eventually become a professor. UWT has helped me achieve my goals and I thank everyone for getting me to where I am today!”




Congratulations to Gabi and Oscar! We wish you the best!
