Important reminders for the July 12th First
Mailing Deadline. By July 12th students will need to:
- Email Kabara
Korth Praskavich (kdk25) and Jennifer Lane (jel29) a list of recommenders, including faculty and external recommenders;
for PAPER packet judges in Symplicity (no need to register for
OSCAR judges, OSCAR judges are any federal judge who accepts online
applications through the OSCAR system); and
- Have all
letters of recommendation that Georgetown Law will be processing turned into Jennifer Lane (jel29).
What letters of recommendation will Georgetown Law process?
Georgetown Law will process all letters from full-time
faculty members, and adjunct and visiting faculty when the recommendation is
based on class participation (versus, for example, performance in an internship
at their place of business). External
letters will be processed on a case-by-case basis for non-profits or government
agencies. Letters will not be processed
for other law schools, or for-profit corporations (such as law firms).
For letters that will be processed by Georgetown, your
recommender should send Jennifer Lane a Microsoft Word version of their
letter. For external recommendations,
the letter should also include an e-signature in the word document or attached
to the same email, and your recommender should ensure their letter is on their
organization’s letter head. If they do
not want to provide a Word version of their e-signature or letter head, they
can write a “Dear Judge” letter, scan it to PDF, and email it to Jennifer Lane
who will print out the appropriate number of copies for your packets.
