Since 1870, Georgetown Law has been an innovator in legal education. We have one of the largest full-time faculties in the world, filled with dedicated scholars and teachers who have expertise in a variety of practice settings as well as the classroom. Twenty-three of our professors have served as U.S. Supreme Court clerks and 39 have advanced degrees in other disciplines. Students can learn environmental law from EPA appointees, study national security law with former DOD officials and be introduced to appellate advocacy by professors who argue before the High Court.
Our clinical programs are consistently ranked the best in the nation, and we offer a wide array of practicum courses — from wrongful convictions to consumer advocacy. We continue to break new ground with our world-renowned centers and institutes, where experts are finding creative solutions to global challenges. An impressive array of course offerings, including field placements in Washington, D.C., provide limitless learning opportunities in international, tax, environmental, constitutional law and more. Externships, summer work and post-graduate fellowships round out a competitive, 21st-century legal education that is recognized and valued around the world.
