Georgetown students may enroll in elective JD subjects except for the following: Global Lawyer (LAWS50071), Institutions in International Law (LAWS50045). In addition, students may not participate in internships, moot court competitions and law journals. Students may enroll in up to one MLM subject, on a space-available basis. 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.
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.
