A Legacy of Excellence, Justice, and Service

There is so much to be proud of in our history — from our earliest days of making law school accessible to government workers in the nation’s capital, to our evolution into a global leader in legal education grounded in Jesuit principles.

We also have much to celebrate about where we are today — from providing exceptional students of diverse backgrounds an unrivaled legal education in the nation’s capital, to the profound impact our graduates, faculty, clinics, and centers and institutes are making in the community, the nation, and around the world.

Looking forward, we plan to continue expanding scholarship and academic programs that support social justice and broaden access to a preeminent legal education in the U.S. capital.

There are many ways to get involved in the 150th Anniversary celebrations. You can show your support by making a contribution in honor of our 150th Anniversary. Explore the interactive timeline of Georgetown Law’s history. Mark the Anniversary by attending a virtual event.

Georgetown Law’s Communications team has created a toolkit of visual and written materials for staff and faculty to use. If you are a Georgetown community member, we encourage you to log in to your Georgetown Google account, and use these 150th-branded materials.

For questions about the 150th Anniversary’s website, programming, or materials, please contact William Bailey, Senior Director of Campaign Management and Special Initiatives, at (202) 662-9671 or William.Bailey@georgetown.edu.
