Georgetown Law Closed: Wednesday, March 21

The Law Center is closed today, Wednesday, March 21, 2018, due to inclement weather. All activities and services, including scheduled events (student organization meetings and events, CLE, and conferences), are canceled. On-site classes will not be held in person and will be held according to the faculty member’s instructional continuity plan. 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.

LLM in National Security Law

Students selected for the National Security Law LL.M. take part in a rigorous academic program.  The National Security Law LL.M. requires that students complete the Proseminar in National Security Law, coursework both in national security law and possibly in other fields, and a writing requirement.

Students enrolled in the National Security Law LL.M. may apply to join the student staff of the Journal of National Security Law & Policy. The Journal relies on the participation of LLM students, and LL.M. students are chosen to be LL.M. Peer Reviewers, to peer review manuscripts for the Journal.

National Security Law Scholars

Each year, a small number of students will be selected as Georgetown Law National Security Law Scholars, based on their academic and professional backgrounds and a demonstrated interest in the subject area. Designation as a Scholar signals a student's strong potential in the field. Scholars will receive partial to full tuition scholarships for their LL.M. studies, and may extend their stay at Georgetown for an optional second year research fellowship. 

To apply, indicate your interest in being considered for the scholarship on your LL.M. application form, and submit a supplemental essay of 500 words (max) on an issue of national security law or policy that is of interest to you. The deadline for consideration is February 9, 2018.
