Georgetown students may enroll in elective JD subjects and up to one of selected MLM subjects on a space available basis. Available courses and important exceptions are outlined here. In addition, students may not participate in internships, moot court competitions and law journals. Where MLM classes are at or near capacity, exchange students are placed on a waitlist. Students may not enroll in compulsory JD subjects.
Most courses meet for a total of 36 hours (3 hours per week over a 12 week semester). Georgetown awards 3 credits for these courses. Courses that meet for less than 36 but at least 24 hours will carry 2 Georgetown credits. A course that meets for less than 24 but at least 12 hours will carry 1 Georgetown credit.
Because new course offerings may not be publicized until the start of the term, it is possible that not all eligible courses are listed above. Participants in this program who wish to enroll in any course not listed above must contact the Office of Transnational Programs by email to request approval. Participants should not expect to receive credit for courses that are not expressly approved by OTP.
Information on grading and student assessment at Melbourne Law school is available here.
Melbourne does not provide housing, but housing advice is available here - exchange students are eligible for the residential colleges and specialized housing packages outlined at that website.
The budget provided reflects spring 2014 amounts. An updated budget for 2015-2016 will be posted as soon as it is available.
