Welcome from Dean William M. Treanor
Welcome to Georgetown Law. When we ask students what attracts them to Georgetown Law, the response always includes our reputation as an academic leader, the fact that we are in the heart of Washington, D.C., and our commitment to justice.
Intellectually and geographically, this is the place where law and ideas meet.
Take our distinguished faculty. In addition to teaching and writing, they also find time to argue before the Supreme Court and testify before Congress. Our students reap the benefits of their expertise.
Our top-ranked clinical program provides hands-on experience in more than a dozen areas of law. Our centers and institutes seek innovative solutions to challenges in areas such as global health, climate change, and human rights. The Supreme Court Institute moots 99 percent of the cases heard by the Supreme Court.
With this kind of training, it’s no wonder that our graduates go on to careers in business, government, law firms, courts, and universities, in the United States and around the world. And no matter where they are, Georgetown Law students and alumni demonstrate a commitment to others that is born of our Jesuit heritage.
In Washington, students enjoy our dynamic campus just blocks from the Capitol and Supreme Court. Georgetown Law has a world-class law library, a residence hall, sport and fitness center, and child care center, making this a vibrant, collegial place, convenient for busy law students.
It is impossible to describe such a diverse community in a single page, so I invite you to browse our website, follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn. When we are able to be back on campus together, we hope that you will visit us and talk to our faculty, staff, and students to understand firsthand what Georgetown is all about. Be safe and well, and we hope to be able to meet you soon.
