Ad Hoc Summer Abroad
The Law Center will accept up to 4 credits taken at a non-Georgetown Law Summer Abroad program with the permission of the Office of Transnational Programs. The Law Center will accept no more than a total of 12 credits from non-Georgetown sponsored study abroad programs. For example, if a student takes 4 credits at a non-Georgetown summer study abroad program, the student could expect to transfer in only 8 credits from any non-Georgetown sponsored semester abroad program.
Students may take up to 14 credits of study abroad credit when a Georgetown-sponsored program is involved. For example, a student may earn up to 4 credits in a non-Georgetown summer abroad program, and then participate in a Georgetown-sponsored semester abroad program and earn only 10 credits from that semester abroad experience.
Students may apply to study at one of two types of summer programs:
- Students may apply to study at a foreign institution directly during the summer.
- Students may apply to study abroad through an ABA-approved program offered by an ABA-approved U.S. law school.
In both cases students must apply via OTP's online application system. To apply, click here and select "apply now" to create an account. If you have already created an account for another study abroad program, click here to login and start a new application.
Students should expect to receive a decision from the Office of Transnational Programs by April 20. Students who submit completed applications early may receive a decision earlier than this date.
