First Year Applicants
Georgetown Law offers a vibrant community, talented faculty, and the unique opportunity to study law in the place where laws are made. We are proud of the extraordinary range of backgrounds and experiences represented by our student body, and we hope you will join us!
Students who will possess a U.S. baccalaureate degree from an accredited college or university, or the equivalent from a foreign institution, prior to matriculation are eligible to apply for admission. First year J.D. applicants may apply to the full-time program, part-time (evening) program, or both.
Students in the full-time program complete their degree in three academic years, with most classes held during the day. Students in the part-time (evening) program typically complete their degree in four academic years, but can request a flexible, accelerated program of three-and-a-half or three years. Students in both programs may register for courses during the day or evening during their upper-class years.
