In 1870, Georgetown University Law Center opened its doors as the first Jesuit-run law school. Today, Georgetown Law ranks among the top 14 law schools in the nation according to U.S. News & World Report’s annual rankings.

Georgetown Law offers both full-time and part-time J.D. programs. Notably, during the first-year, students have the option of choosing between two courses of study; one of which provides the traditional first year curriculum that parallels the courses offered at other major law schools in addition to offering an elective and another that takes a more interdisciplinary approach. Overall, the law school’s curriculum is broad and diverse with more than 350 courses and seminars offered to second and third year students. In addition, students have the opportunity supplement traditional coursework with offerings such as, clinical placements, international and comparative law programs, joint degree programs, and study abroad opportunities.

Georgetown Law’s location in Washington, DC gives its students convenient access to vital government institutions such as the United States Supreme Court, the Congress, the Department of Justice, the Library of Congress as well as numerous agencies, administrative boards and federal government commissions.
