The Office of Academic Affairs at Georgetown University Law Center provides academic resources and support to J.D. students and faculty. OAA leads the Law Center’s curricular planning, course scheduling, and academic policy development. OAA academic advisors are available to assist students with planning their course-load to maximize their time here at the Law Center and prepare them for the legal field.
