At Georgetown Law, first-year students have two curricula from which to choose. “Curriculum ‘A’ is the traditional first year curriculum which parallels those at all major law schools. Curriculum ‘B’ was developed in 1991 by a faculty committee charged by the Dean to comprehensively rethink the first year of law school and offers an innovative and integrated approach to the study of law. The ‘B’ section emphasizes the sources of law in history, philosophy, political theory, and economics. It also seeks to reflect the increasingly public nature of contemporary law.” (Georgetown Law Website)

Georgetown Law offers a wide variety of options to its second and third year students. For example, there are more than 350 chooses from which to choose. In addition, the school offers clinical education experiences in its Appellate Litigation Clinic, Center for Applied Legal Studies, Criminal Justice Clinic, D.C. Law Students in Court, D.C. Street Law Program, Domestic Violence Clinic, Federal Legislation and Administrative Clinic, Housing & Community Development Clinic, Policy Clinic, Institute for Public Representation, International Women's Human Rights Clinic, and Juvenile Justice Clinic.
