Margot Keany, her husband and their two kids live in her parents’ house on Mercer Island. Keany graduated from law school at Seattle University in 2010, but it took her two years to find her first job as a licensed attorney. Today, she isn’t practicing law, but instead working as a municipal contract administrator. She questions whether it’s a good idea to create a new law school at the University of Washington Tacoma. “I think it would be big mistake to send more people off to be disappointed,” she said.
