London Summer Program

Application

All applications should be submitted online by following the appropriate link below.  All applications will be considered on a rolling basis.  The application deadline has been extended, apply today!

  • Georgetown students, students enrolled at other US law schools and graduates of US law schools should apply here
  • Law school students currently studying at an institution outside of the US and graduates of such institutions (who do not also hold a US law degree) should apply here
    • Note:  Applicants will need to submit a letter of good standing and a transcript from their home university, as well as proof of their English proficiency as outlined here.

Enrollment is limited to ensure small classes.  Admission decisions are made on a rolling basis beginning in late January, so early application is recommended. Application review will begin following the posting of fall semester grades. Applications received before this time will be given equal priority.

Students are required to submit preliminary course selections as part of their application.  Although every effort will be made to accommodate all course requests, courses could fill up in advance of the April 1 application deadline.  As mentioned below, admissions decisions are made on a rolling basis, so early application is highly recommended.  A student's seat in a particular course is not confirmed until he or she submits a tuition deposit.  If a course becomes oversubscribed, students will be placed on a wait-list for that course.

Admission and Payments

Admission decisions are made on a rolling basis beginning in late January. Applicants will be notified within three weeks of receipt of all application materials. A partially refundable $250 tuition deposit (and a $200 housing deposit for those who wish to reserve program housing) will be due within two weeks of notification of acceptance. These sums will be applied toward the final tuition and housing charges.

The summer program is unable to provide direct financial assistance to program participants. However, Georgetown University Law Center will process forms for loans or other benefits for which a student may be eligible.

Admission Schedule

Application Deadline Extended- Apply Now!

Within 2 weeks of notification of acceptance: $250 tuition deposit due (plus $200 housing deposit if applicable), credited toward total program costs.

April 28, 2017: Deadline to request a partial refund (up to $100 of each applicable deposit) if you choose to withdraw from the program.

May 25, 2017: Balance of tuition and Georgetown housing charges (if applicable) due.*

*Between May 26 and the start of classes, students are eligible for a partial refund or credit of tuition and Georgetown housing charges up to a maximum of the full amount less $550 if a serious medical condition or other emergency makes attendance impossible. The maximum refund will be reduced by an amount equal to any unavoidable losses or costs (e.g., inability to re-rent a paid dorm room). In order to receive a refund, you must notify us in writing and you must also provide adequate documentation showing that a serious medical condition or other emergency caused your withdrawal from the program.  

The London Summer Program Tuition Refund Policy applies once the program begins.

Please note: Students who withdraw from the program or from program housing are required to notify the Office of Transnational Programs in writing. Notification should be sent to OTP at lawtransnational@georgetown.edu. Students who fail to e-mail OTP directly will be held financially responsible for all applicable charges.

Accommodation for Disability

Georgetown University Law Center welcomes applications from students with disabilities and is committed to making the London Summer Program accessible for students with physical, learning, chronic health, psychological, and other disabilities. 

Students registered with the Office of Disability Services who are eligible for on-campus accommodations are also eligible for accommodation in London, when it can be arranged. Registered students should contact Disability Services at Georgetown Law, within two weeks following admission to identify reasonable accommodations they may need overseas. Students not registered with Disability Services are responsible for identifying themselves to the Director of Disability Services, in sufficient time to allow for receipt of proper documentation and coordination of services. Please visit the Disability Services web page for more information about how to request accommodations.

Applicants should be aware that public buildings in the UK are not always accessible and are encouraged to speak with Disability Services to identify reasonable accommodations needed while abroad. Accommodation questions should be directed to disabilityservices@georgetown.edu or 202-662-4042.

Cancellation Policy

Georgetown reserves the right to alter or cancel this program. Cancellation may occur due to unforeseen international events that could substantially inhibit program operations or seriously compromise student safety, or other unforeseen circumstances. Cancellation due to under enrollment would occur before April 20, 2017. In the event that the program is cancelled, the Law Center will make efforts to arrange for students to enroll in another program. If we cancel the program, all tuition and housing payments will be returned. Our first overseas program was in 1988; to date, we have never canceled a summer program.
