Established in 1993, the Resident Fellow Program is crucial in creating the sense of community students find on the Georgetown Law campus. As members of the Office of Residence Life, the five Resident Fellows (RFs) reside in the Gewirz Student Center and act as a hybrid between a traditional undergraduate resident assistant and a hall director. The RFs promote community in Gewirz through programs designed to bring residents together and to provide insights into the first year law student experience.Each RF is responsible for the guidance and general assistance of two floors of residents.
The Resident Fellow position is part-time; however, some situations may require a more extensive time commitment.The positions are highly sought after and although the selection process is competitive, previous residence life experience is not required.
Whether they are planning a program, discussing building issues, or fine tuning the emergency response plan, the RFs work closely and collaboratively with one another. In addition, RFs work closely with both faculty and staff to bring events and information to the residents of Gewirz.
If you want to expand your law school experience in a leadership role, the Resident Fellow position will be ideal for you!
"Without a doubt, being a Resident Fellow was the best experience I had in law school.
