Joint J.D./LL.M. in National Security Law
The J.D./LL.M. Joint Degree in National Security Law is highly competitive, and only a select number of J.D. students will gain admission. Students must apply for admission to the program at the end of their 2L/3E year. Note that due to the course requirements of the program, students may only begin the LL.M. portion of the joint degree in the Fall semester.
Georgetown J.D. students who are admitted to this program and take at least nine credits derived from the listed national security law courses will be able to complete an LL.M. degree in one additional semester (or somewhat longer if they choose to complete the program on a part time basis). Students would be required to take twelve credits in the additional fall semester, comprised of the Proseminar in National Security Law (three credits) and six credits of other listed national security law courses, and an additional three credits open for study as they wish.
