Available Courses

The law degree program at UTDT is an undergraduate, full-time, five-year course of study, using the case method and simulation techniques. It also features moot court competitions, intensive training in legal writing, and externship programs. Students visiting the university can take classes offered to fourth and fifth-year students. Students may also take approved courses in UTDT's LLM programs in Law and Economic, and Tax Law.  These courses tend to be short, meeting over the span of a month or less.  The following courses were approved for Georgetown students in the past.  Course offerings will be available shortly before the start of the term.
