Center of the Inland Empire
Gonzaga Law is in Spokane, Washington; the center of the Inland Empire. Part of the greater Pacific Northwest, the area has everything from outdoor adventure to arts and cultural events. A diverse regional economy supports a huge variety of industries including biosciences, manufacturing, aerospace, and agriculture. Gonzaga Law is central to Spokane’s University District, which has campuses for Gonzaga, Eastern Washington University, Washington State University, Whitworth University, and Community Colleges of Spokane, all along a one-mile stretch of the Spokane River that is within walking distance to downtown.
A Vibrant Place to Live
The Spokane-Coeur d’Alene Metropolitan Area has just over 600,000 people and ranks in the top 90 most populous metropolitan areas in the United States. Spokane hosts a number of festivals and major events each year. The annual Lilac Bloomsday Run is the world’s largest timed street race. Hoopfest is the world’s largest three-on-three basketball tournament. Spokefest celebrates cyclists of every age and ability. Pig Out in the Park fills Spokane’s central Riverfront park with music and food booths for a week. Each month, First Friday fills downtown with art openings. The Spokane Centennial Trail provides a walking and biking path that runs from the west side of Spokane all the way to Coeur d’Alene.
A Place To Learn
The cost of living in Spokane is about 5 percent less than national average, and housing is about 12 percent less. Spokane is a great place to live the life you’d like while becoming the lawyer you want to be. The city’s business and legal communities are large enough to provide internships for law school students, and small enough to give recent grads a foothold.
