Early Interview Week
Georgetown Law's Early Interview Week (EIW) program is one of the largest law student interview programs in the country, generating nearly 7,000 interviews in just 4 days. The 2015 EIW program will be held from August 10 - 13, 2015 at the Hyatt Regency Washington on Capitol Hill. This year Georgetown Law will continue to use the hybrid interview assignment program.
