Location and Appointments
The Writing Center is located across from in the Legal Research & Writing Office in Room 537 McDonough Hall at Georgetown Law. The address is:
600 New Jersey Avenue, NW
Washington, DC 20001
The Writing Center is open by appointment only. All students may make appointments to discuss questions they have on a writing assignment in any class at Georgetown, a journal note, or a writing project in conjunction with an extracurricular activity. Students, however, may not submit privileged, confidential or work product material drafted in connection with a summer job, internship or externship without first obtaining the express permission of their supervising attorney.
All students may sign up for one 45 minute conference each week. Students sign up for conference appointments in the Writing Center appointment book located outside the Legal Research and Writing office, Room 540 McDonough Hall. Evening appointments are available. The Writing Center is open during the academic year when classes are in session. It is closed during exams, school breaks, academic holidays, and the summer.
After signing up for an appointment, you must provide the Senior Writing Fellow with a copy of your document at least 24 hours in advance of the scheduled conference time. Papers and requests for Monday conferences should be submitted by the previous Friday. In addition, students making appointments must complete a short questionnaire identifying specific objectives of the conference.
