Whatever the reason, we invite you to learn more about Georgetown Law Executive Education.
A Tradition of Excellence
Georgetown Law has been a leader and innovator in legal education for nearly 150 years. Our Executive programs are built upon that strong foundation, expertly tailored to challenge lifelong learners to take their performance to the next level. Located in Washington, DC just steps from the U.S. Capitol and Supreme Court, Georgetown Law is perfectly situated at the crossroads of global law and leadership. We offer Executive training participants unparalleled opportunities to expand their skills and unrivaled access to top legal, regulatory and management experts.
Georgetown Law’s Executive Education faculty are global leaders in law, policy and management. Our Executive courses are taught by full-time, visiting and adjunct faculty members from Georgetown Law and the broader University community, as well as by affiliated experts. All Executive program faculty bring world-class expertise to their sessions.
We offer multiple options for program delivery. Executive training modules take place online, at Georgetown Law and at client sites around the globe.
One size does not fit all.
Our custom Executive Education programs allow us to work closely with clients to understand their professional development needs. We create a perfectly tailored experience that delivers the precise tools and training needed. Our programs are interactive by design, with participants learning creatively and collaboratively in order to better achieve success. Every detail is carefully managed to the client’s satisfaction and to enhance the skills required for success in today’s constantly evolving legal and business marketplace.
A Blend of Substantive & Skills-Based Training
Georgetown Law offers both substantive programs in legal subject matter areas and skills-based modules focusing on critical areas not traditionally taught in law schools. Our Executive faculty and professional staff have offered global clients custom programs in diverse substantive areas such as Anti-Corruption & Compliance; Conflicts of Interest Matters for Non-Profit Boards; Global Trade; and the Management of Trusts and Endowments. We have delivered management and skills-development programs to a range of clients, for attorneys at different stages of their careers. One program may be designed specifically for young associates, focused on the substance and skills involved in drafting non-disclosure agreements. Another program may touch on leadership and management issues that are paramount to a firm’s class of newly-minted counsel. Yet another offering may be designed with senior law firm leaders in mind, focused specifically on refining their strategic planning and high-level leadership skills.

All professionals can benefit from executive training in leadership and management. As such, Georgetown Law Executive Education offers a suite of “Law & Leadership” programs, all of which involve interactive learning styles and can be tailored according to client experience level.
