Georgetown Law Open on Time
The Law Center will open on time Monday, March 2, 2015, but liberal leave is in effect. All designated emergency employees must report to work on time. All other employees may take unscheduled leave, but should contact their supervisor to discuss the needs of their unit and individual circumstances.
Full-time students devote a substantial amount of their time during the academic year to the study of law. The full-time program is six semesters long (three academic years) with most classes held between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. However, during their upperclass years, full-time students may take courses in the part-time program, which are typically held in the evenings.
During their first year, full-time students take 31 semester hours of required course work. After the first year, students are required to take a course in Professional Responsibility and fulfill the Upperclass Legal Writing Requirement in addition to their elective course of study. In the upperclass years, full-time students are expected to enroll in 12-16 credit hours each semester.
The essays in the Curriculum Guide suggest how upperclass students might design their upperclass curriculum.
