Paper Requirements and Application Process
Students may submit one paper to satisfy the requirements in two Law Center seminars undertaken in the same semester by securing the written approval of both professors and the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs before writing the paper. A student must submit a written request to the Office of the Registrar by no later than the end of the fourth week of classes. (See Application Deadline above for application form). The request should include (1) both professors’ approvals of the proposed joint paper, (2) the page length requirement for each seminar, and (3) the minimum number of words or pages of the proposed joint paper (at least 12,000 words excluding footnotes (approximately 50 pages)).
All requests are reviewed by the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs and approval is not automatic. If permission is granted, the student will also be required to meet all other requirements of both seminars. Students shall indicate the joint nature of the paper on the cover page of all submissions. Each professor will submit a final grade independently, assessing the paper as it applies to their own course, and the final grades given for the two seminars need not be identical. Any extension to the paper deadline must receive prior approval from both professors.
Students may not submit a single paper for a seminar and a Supervised Research project. Students also may not submit a single paper to satisfy the requirements of two Supervised Research projects. Students wishing to submit a single paper to satisfy the requirements of a Law Center seminar and a graduate course taken for credit on the Main Campus should contact an advisor in the Office of Academic Affairs for more information. (See Credit for Courses in the Undergraduate or Graduate Schools of the University, on p. 24 of the Georgetown Law Student Handbook for more information on taking courses on the Main Campus.)
