About Us

Scholarships

McKinley Irvin is proud to support law students interested in pursuing the study of family law. We offer scholarship opportunities for Seattle University Law School students. These law scholarships promote excellence in family law.

Laura Sell, Law Practice Managing Partner, explains why we offer these scholarship opportunities:

undefined“Family law is an area of practice that touches on many other areas of law. We also work directly with people on matters that deeply affect their lives. Thus, it takes a special kind of attorney to be a leader in family law—knowledgeable, empathetic, and tenacious. We are excited to support students who have that aptitude.”
