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).
