Future Jobs: Judicial Clerk for the U.S. District Court of the District of Columbia (2019); Judicial Clerk for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit (2021)
“Because of the Georgetown Law evening program, I have been able to gain significant legal experience while in law school. After finishing my first year in the program, I pursued temporary employment at a state prosecutor’s office, a federal judge’s chambers, and two D.C. law firms.
Through these jobs, I was able to directly apply what I was learning in class, refine my employment goals after law school, and obtain more practical legal research and writing experience than I could have in a clinic or externship.
None of this would have been possible if it were not for the flexibility of the evening program.”

Former job: Community Editor, SmartBrief Inc.
Current job: Law Fellow in Children’s Rights Advocacy, Children’s Defense Fund
“Georgetown’s Evening Program made my transition from journalist to advocate seamless. I was drawn to Georgetown because it was one of the few law schools with a dedicated public interest program, and I ultimately chose the Evening Program because of its peerless classroom experience — it was humbling to be at an institution where both my professors and my classmates were experts in the field.
Highlights included serving as a Legal Writing & Practice Fellow, Public Interest Law Fellow, and Editor in Chief of the Georgetown Journal on Poverty Law & Policy.”
Current Job: Program Manager, Georgetown Center for the Constitution
Future Job: Summer Associate, Covington & Burling
“Georgetown Law’s evening program gave me so many opportunities to get involved on and off campus.
I have served as an editor of the Georgetown Law Journal as well as a week one teaching fellow. The evening program’s flexibility allowed me to pursue internships at the Department of Justice’s Criminal Division and Google’s Legal Summer Institute.”

Future Job: Associate, Arnold & Porter (Washington, DC)
“Being an evening student allowed me to combine the top-notch legal education at Georgetown with valuable legal work experiences that day students often go without.
The variety of work experiences I had helped me develop my interests and my legal research and writing skills, as well as made me more desirable on the job market because in interviews I could point to real-world work product, not just classroom grades.”

Previous Jobs: Law Clerk, Judge Deborah Chasanow, U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland; Reader, Judge David Tatel, U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit (during law school)
“I came to law school because I wanted to be a high-level government litigator. In the evening program at Georgetown Law, I was able to get a degree from an elite school and legal experience at the same time, and achieved my goal of joining the Department of Justice through the Honors Program.
I also loved my Georgetown classmates from both the evening and the day programs, and ultimately got involved in a number of extracurricular activities – a law journal, student government, the public interest fellows program – in addition to my classes.”

Current Job: Judicial Law Clerk
“I credit the Georgetown Law Evening Program for allowing me to get the full law school experience while also having the flexibility to start a family and complete work in my previous career.
While enrolled in the Evening Program, I worked as an intelligence analyst for the Department of Defense at the Pentagon, and later as a part-time law clerk for the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.
I was also able to fully participate in extra-curricular activities, including serving as a Legal Research and Writing Law Fellow, a member of the Appellate Advocacy team, and an editor on the Georgetown Law Journal.”
