The Eric E. Hotung International Law Center Building
Completed in August 2004, the six-story Hotung building is the newest academic building on the Georgetown Law Campus.
This building was designed to strengthen the Law Center’s ability to prepare our students to participate fully in the global community. Those engaged in the practice of law recognize the increasing number of issues that require lawyers to focus beyond national borders. The Hotung building brings all the major components of the international programs under one roof, enabling Georgetown to continue to build on the academic excellence that has already placed it at the vanguard of legal education and scholarship in this country. The building is home to many offices including International and Graduate Programs, Law Alumni and Development, Public Relations, Continuing Legal Education, and several student organizations. Our Supreme Court Moot Court Room and an Alumni Welcoming Center can be found on the second floor. International Law Faculty offices, seminar rooms, and classrooms are also located throughout the building.
Office of Career Services
OCS is located on the 4th floor.
Did you know that 99% of law students have a job within 6 months of graduation? Office of Career Strategy Advisors will work with you to create your unique career plan, tailored to your specific needs and interests. Along the way, you’ll be further supported by our many workshops, resources, and recruitment programs. Each section is assigned a Career Counselor from OCS who stays with you throughout your 3 or 4 years at the Law Center. OCS also coordinates the fall On-Campus Interview Programs, where over 700 employers from firms, the government, and public interest options come to campus to interview GULC students.
Office of the Dean of Students (ODOS)
ODOS is located on the 3rd floor.
Together with its affiliate offices, the Office of the Dean of Students (ODOS) oversees student life at the Law Center. ODOS provides academic and personal counseling, support for students with disabilities, and develops programs that complement the law school curriculum while enhancing the student experience. Students seeking academic assistance can also contact ODOS to receive one-on-one private tutoring for free. The Office of the Dean of Students also oversees the Center of Wellness Promotion, the Office of Equity and Inclusion, the Office of Disability Services, The Office of Student Life, and the Office of Residence Life.
Office of the Registrar
The Office of the Registrar is located on the 3rd floor.
The Office of the Registrar oversees transcripts, grades, and a variety of other crucial functions of the Law Center. One of these crucial functions is exam administration — The Office of the Registrar administers take-home examinations for Georgetown Law students. They are also the main point of contact for all VA Benefit inquiries at Georgetown Law.
Supreme Court Model Courtroom
The centerpiece of the Supreme Court Institute (SCI) is the Supreme Court Moot Court Program, which taps into the expertise of faculty and outside practitioners to prepare counsel for oral argument before the Court. In recent years, the SCI has advanced that goal by conducting moot courts for advocates in nearly every case on the Court’s argument docket. In the October Term of 2019, the SCI provided a moot court to counsel in 100% of the cases argued before the Court. The SCI moot court program was also featured in a New York Times article by Supreme Court correspondent Adam Liptak.
The Supreme Moot Court is modeled entirely after the actual Supreme Court — from the set-up and floor to the large clock looming above the justices. Students are able to register to sit in on a moot court, and every student enrolled in the J.D. program at Georgetown attends a moot court as part of the first-year Legal Research and Writing curriculum.
