Strategic exam prep


Looking for help from someone who successfully navigated first-year courses as recently as last year?

Sign-up to receive one of our outstanding peer tutors! Georgetown Law’s tutors are exceptionally qualified 2L and 3L students who help 1Ls tackle their first-year classes. Tutoring is free to all first-year law students, but is limited to one course and available for one hour per week. You will work in a small group setting with other students in your course. Whenever possible, first year students are matched with tutors who took the same course with the same professor their first year.

To allow time for students to settle into their classes and discover the class for which a tutor would be most useful, 1Ls are matched with tutors by early October (in the fall semester), and late-February (in the spring semester).

“Thank you so much for your help this semester! It was really great to study and exam prep with [my tutor,] and I am so grateful to you for giving me the opportunity.”
