In Georgetown Law's simulation courses, students step into the role of the lawyer in rich, hypothetical scenarios. This gives students first-hand experience in lawyering skills before they need to rely on them in practice. All simulation courses emphasize practice, performance, faculty feedback, and self-reflection, and have low student: faculty ratios.
Georgetown's simulation curriculum covers a wide range of skills, including: negotiations, mediation, trial skills, interviewing, client counseling, applied legal writing, international arbitration, problem solving, teambuilding, presentation skills, and oral advocacy. See here for our current offerings.
Most simulation courses are for upperclass students. In the first year, students have the chance to take one of our four-day simulation courses in the week before the regular Spring semester. For more information, please visit our first-year Week One program website.
