Georgetown Law Open on Time
The Law Center will open on time, Tuesday, January 27, 2015, but liberal leave is in effect.
All designated emergency employees must report to work on time. All other employees may take unscheduled leave, but should contact their supervisor to discuss the needs of their unit and individual circumstances. Classes will begin at their normal time, unless otherwise noted on the class cancellation line: 202-662-9446 or the class cancellation page. Any changes to this announcement will be communicated through the same channels by 5:00 am on Tuesday morning.
The Doctor of Juridical Science (S.J.D.) is the highest degree offered by Georgetown. It is primarily designed for foreign-trained lawyers who are interested in becoming law professors, scholars, jurists or public intellectuals, or in deepening their scholarship to continue in these fields.
Georgetown’s S.J.D. Program is exceptional. It offers students a unique opportunity to benefit from the world’s largest law curriculum and the extraordinary faculty who teach it, while doing so in a personalized environment designed to respond to the specific needs of S.J.D. students. S.J.D. students have unparalleled access to resources by virtue of studying in Washington, D.C., the capital of the United States and home to major international organizations. S.J.D. students are an integral part of the law school community and are invited to participate in its rich academic and social life. The S.J.D. Program is intentionally small to enable students to receive individualized attention and to cultivate a close community of scholars for enrichment and ongoing support. There is no limit to the topics that students may consider as long as they are original, able to contribute to the production of new legal knowledge and pursued with academic rigor.
