Located in Washington D.C., Georgetown University Law Center has a unique curriculum for first year students, knowledgeable faculty, and an in-house clinical program. It offers over 400 courses. At Georgetown, there are 10 degree programs and 4 joint degree programs. The programs range from administrative law to international law. Along with these programs, Georgetown Law offers an innovative curriculum. First year students can choose from two different curricula (Curriculum A or Curriculum B) and take an international law course known as, “Week One: Law in Global Context.” There are practicum courses that combine interactive learning with a classroom lecture.
Students have opportunities to be able to learn from faculty outside the classroom. The professors connect and interact with students through events, such as “Learn at Lunch” and “First Wednesdays.” Georgetown University Law Center has an in-house clinical program known as one of the best in the nation. Students volunteer in the surrounding community, attend lectures at a center, and join student organizations. Barristers’ Council allows students to understand what it feels like to be in court through mock trial competitions. In Barristers’ Council, students work on a division (Alternative Dispute Resolution, Trial Advocacy, and Appellate Advocacy) of their choice.
There are also opportunities for Georgetown University Law Center students to go aboard through transnational programs. The transnational programs allow students to be able to expand their studies of law in places, such as Paris and London. There are additional international programs, such as Global Law Scholars and Global Teaching Fellows, which allow students to be able to become more involved in aspects of international law.
Georgetown Law guides students as they search for their careers in law. Georgetown’s Office of Career Services assists students with the job search and prepares students for entry into the law field through “Lawyers in Balance.” Georgetown is home to the award winning Georgetown Law Journal.
