The Law and Social Work Society is an official student group at both the Law School and the Brown School. The Law and Social Work Society is open to any student in either school who is in the J.D./M.S.W. dual degree program, interested in it, or just interested in the intersection of law and social work. The Society helps members stay connected to each other as well as the school and local community. Activities include community service, dual degree informational sessions for prospective students, networking events with J.D./M.S.W. alumni, and working with administrators to promote and constantly improve the program. One of the most invaluable services the Law and Social Work Society provides is an academic planning lunch each semester. The academic planning lunch offers current J.D./M.S.W. students the opportunity to meet with their academic advisors as well as the registrars, financial aid administrators, and student services advisors from both schools to plan for the upcoming semester.

The Law and Social Work Society also organizes social outings to give students the chance to simply unwind. The group itself is a great resource for all of the random (and inevitable) questions that come up during the dual degree journey.

If you have any questions about the JD/MSW program, feel free to contact the Law and Social Work Society to talk to current J.D./M.S.W. students by emailing washulawandsocialwork@gmail.com.
