Transnational Law Faculty

The distinguished full-time faculty at Georgetown includes world-renowned international and transnational legal scholars as well as outstanding faculty in other areas of the law who have broadened the scope of their scholarship and teaching to encompass law in a global context. This combination provides Georgetown students with challenging and timely courses, and direct access to outstanding examples of the expanding role of law and lawyers in today's world. The full time scholar-teachers who are engaged in instruction at Georgetown are joined by a wide array of Washington, DC practitioners-judges, general counsel, law firm partners, agency chiefs, and congressional staff members who bring together the theory and application of law as it is made and practiced in everyday life.
