A legal education that knows no boundaries

National security law … International economic competition law … environmental law. If there’s a field of law that interests you, Georgetown University Law Center can help you put together a rigorous program of study to pursue a career in it. We offer one of the nation’s largest, most respected Juris Doctor (J.D.) programs, with a breadth and depth of courses that is matched only by our opportunities for hands-on experiential learning in Washington, D.C.

For U.S. and international lawyers interested in refining their expertise, we offer Master of Laws (LL.M.), Master of Studies in Law (M.S.L.), Doctor of Juridical Science (S.J.D.) and Certificate programs that are recognized around the world. We also offer joint programs that combine the J.D. and LL.M. degrees; opportunities to pursue another advanced degree at Georgetown; and transnational programs that allow J.D. students to spend a semester abroad.

Theory and practice meet here

Our world-class faculty includes celebrated theorists and leading practitioners who are actively involved outside of the classroom in writing, interpreting and enforcing the law. They combine deep thinking and scholarship with vast experience in what it means to be on the ground in the top levels of the legal and regulatory system in D.C.
