Additional Information

Join Malou Chavez for this informal gathering as she answers your questions regarding her journey to Seattle University School of Law and legal practice.

Chavez grew up in Compton, California, and is a first-generation college graduate. Her passion is to increase awareness about higher education options for students of underrepresented backgrounds; specifically, those students with a pattern of less access to and lower graduation rates from college.

While at UCLA, Chavez was part of the Academic Advancement Program, co-founded Improving Dreams, Equality, Access and Success, and participated in the 2004-2005 UCLA Law Fellows Program. Motivated by the Law Fellows Program and with a driving vision to better serve and continuously give back to her community, Chavez pursued a law school education.

Soon after Chavez received her J.D. in May 2010, she was named the Northwest Immigrant Rights Project’s 2010 Immigrant Justice Fellow. She is now an immigration attorney helping clients who are survivors of crimes pursue their lawful immigration status.
