Combining a world-renowned faculty, a dedication to intellectual stimulation and community, and a location in the heart of the nation's capital, Georgetown is a unique place to study law. With more than 115 full-time faculty, Georgetown is able to offer the most comprehensive legal curriculum in the nation: more than 400 courses and seminars in disciplines ranging from constitutional law to intellectual property to international and comparative law.
Located in Washington, D.C., within blocks of the U.S. Congress that enacts laws, the Supreme Court that interprets them, and the administrative agencies that enforce them, Georgetown provides an unparalleled vantage point from which its faculty and students explore the dynamic legal processes of our nation and world.
Whether you decide to pursue your Juris Doctor degree through the Full-Time Program or the Part-Time Program, our goal is to educate our students to be superb lawyers. No other law school better prepares people for practice -- who will promote justice and serve others in their legal practices and in their lives. Full-time faculty teach in both divisions and the same standards of performance are required of day and evening students.
