Who May Apply
Only applicants who will possess a U.S. baccalaureate degree from an accredited college or university or the equivalent from a foreign institution prior to registration day are eligible for admission to Georgetown Law as candidates for the degree of Juris Doctor or any of the Joint Degree programs. J.D. candidates may apply for admission to the Full-Time Division, the Part-Time (Evening) Division or "Both."
The American Bar Association (ABA Standard 504) requires that we advise applicants that in addition to a bar examination, there are character, fitness, and other qualifications for admission to the bar in every U.S. jurisdiction. Applicants are encouraged to determine the requirements for any jurisdiction in which they intend to seek admission by contacting the jurisdiction. Addresses for all relevant agencies are available through the National Conference of Bar Examiners. For more information, please visit the American Bar Association website at http://www.americanbar.org/aba.html. Bar-related information for our admitted students is available here.
