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.
