Georgetown has long been nationally recognized for its leadership in the field of clinical legal education. Our clinics offer students an unparalleled opportunity to serve the public, explore career possibilities, gain first-hand insight into the strategic and ethical dimensions of the profession, and acquire valuable legal skills in a supportive educational environment. In the 2015-2016 academic year, we will offer seventeen different clinical courses. Over 300 students are expected to participate, again making this the largest in-house clinical program in the nation.
Georgetown’s clinics are very intensive; the typical student-to-teacher ratio is just five-to-one. As a result, you will receive focused, individualized attention from full-time faculty and graduate teaching fellows who know your work, and can help you improve, in a way not possible in a traditional classroom setting. You will be pushed to accomplish more than you may think possible, but in a space where extensive support and a built-in safety net allows you to reach for those new goals.
Your clinic experience will undoubtedly be very demanding, gripping, and sometimes exhausting. We trust it also will be an enriching and unique part of your Georgetown education.
