    The mission of William H. Gates Public Service Law Program (Gates PSL) is to create a culture at the University of Washington School of Law (UW Law) where students, faculty and staff are inspired and empowered to make public service, equity and inclusion an integral feature of their professional lives. 

    A part of Student and Career Services, Gates PSL is the central hub for public service/public interest law events and programming, career coaching and academic advising, pro bono service, and leadership development at UW Law.
