Registration for Summer Experience 2023 will open on March 20! Please check back here for the registration link soon.

Session I – July 10, 2023 – July 28, 2023

Session II – July 31, 2023 – August 18, 2023

This program is only open to foreign-trained L.L.M. students admitted to the Georgetown Law LL.M. program.  Courses fulfill some New York Bar requirements and allow more flexibility in course selection during the academic year. Please note: we can only accommodate a limited number of students in the 2023 Summer Experience Program. The registration form will close automatically once we reach capacity.

A fabulous experience!

The best decision ever… I cannot imagine starting my LL.M. without the Foundations course.

A wonderful class… I feel more prepared and comfortable to begin the LL.M.!

The course clearly makes the transition to the start of the LL.M. and to living in D.C. much easier!
