Georgetown Law Closed: Wednesday, March 21
The Law Center is closed due to inclement weather. All activities and services, including classes and scheduled events (student organization meetings and events, CLE, and conferences), are canceled. All administrative offices are closed. The food services operation, fitness center and Early Learning Center are closed. The library is closed. It is expected that only designated emergency employees will come to the Law Center to fulfill their responsibilities. All others -- including students, staff, faculty, and visitors -- are expected not come to the Law Center, which will not be staffed to support anything other than essential life safety and snow/ice clearing functions.
Former Student Impressions
Professor Baker's lecture helped me better understand the structure of the U.S. government and the workings of this great nation. It has also given me new insights on many frequently used terms like "democracy" and "majoritarian tyranny." This was certainly a refreshing and inspiring learning experience.

When I signed up for this program, I mostly looked forward to meeting Justice Alito, however, this program has given me so much more than that. Dr. Baker's lectures were excellent and we visited so many institutions in two weeks that even though I will be pursuing a J.D. in the future, I don't think I will get such a great opportunity to understand the U.S. Constitution in such a unique way."

Benefits of the Program for Students Applying to Graduate School in the United States
I was admitted by the Georgetown LL.M program in January 2017. Participating in the U.S. Constitution and American Economy Summer Program introduced me to the U.S. Constitution and legal system, and evoked my passion for further education at Georgetown. During the LL.M application process, the experience in the summer program really helped me think through the reasons for applying, and has formed my uniqueness among all the competitors.
