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.


Georgetown Law requires only one letter of recommendation or evaluation to apply to the J.D. program. Additional letters or evaluations will be accepted. If possible, recommendations/evaluations should be completed by faculty members with personal knowledge of the applicant's academic work. Recommendations/evaluations from employers are also acceptable. We recommend that letters be submitted through the LSAC Letter of Recommendation Service, included with your CAS Registration subscription. Individual letters may, however, be sent directly to Georgetown Law.

If you would like the Committee to consider additional recommendations before rendering a decision, complete the "hold request" section of the application.  If you have already submitted your application, you are welcome to email us at to request that the Committee hold your application until any additional recommendation(s) are received. Please include the name(s) of your recommender(s) and/or evaluator(s).
