The Office of Student Life's (OSL's) primary purpose is to enhance the quality of student life and community at the Law Center by initiating programming and helping student organizations achieve their goals. OSL achieves this aim by providing training, advising, resources, and support for all recognized student organizations. Our student organizations however, are truly the heart of extracurricular activities at Georgetown University's Law Center.
Throughout the academic year, the Law Center radiates with activity from our nearly 100 registered student organizations. These organizations captivate the Law Center community by hosting panels and guest speakers about law and policy issues, providing community service opportunities and outreach, engaging alumni and practitioners in professional development opportunities for students, and by creating opportunities for social interaction and cultural appreciation.
The diversity of our student organizations as well as the wide variety of events and event venues allow for students to learn, form new and meaningful relationships, and explore all that Washington, DC has to offer. The types of events hosted by student organizations include: Panel discussions with leading experts on a range of special interest legal topics, Networking, Career Mentoring, and Professional Development events with local attorneys and Law Center Alumni, and various sports, recreation and wellness events.
We urge all students to consider joining a student organization and to take advantage of the numerous opportunities to build leadership skills and connect with the vast network of students, Alumni, and Practitioners that has been created through student organization involvement. Visit us in McDonough Hall Room 170 for more information on getting involved with a student organization.
