Our world-class scholars work in both domestic and international law, with special expertise in areas such as antitrust and trade regulation, corporate law, banking and finance, sovereign debt, bankruptcy law, business organization, securities regulation, and commercial law.

The extensive range of faculty expertise, plus a large number of adjuncts who are practice in the area, enables Georgetown Law to offer students a broad and rigorous collection of core and advanced courses in corporate law, securities regulation, antitrust law, and more. The Securities and Financial Regulation LL.M. program features courses on topics such as commodity futures markets, corporate governance, and financial derivatives, taught by experts from agencies such as the Securities and Exchange Commission and from leading Washington firms. Students can also take advantage of our DC location to gain practical experience through internships at financial regulatory agencies. 

At the Harrison Institute for Public Law, a public policy clinic, students assist governments, international coalitions, and public interest advocates working on trade and investment policy. Projects include providing a policy assessment focused on the authority to regulate tobacco and pharmaceutical trade and investment, and using trade rules to limit fossil fuel subsidies. 

The Center on Transnational Business and the Law, based at Georgetown Law, focuses on legal and public policy issues faced by multinational corporations in today's increasingly global economic environment. The Center hosts visiting scholars and attracts prominent corporate executives, private practitioners, and government officials to engage with students and scholars about developments relevant to transnational business and commercial undertakings in the contemporary marketplace.
