Application Form

Our preferred application is our online version, through LSAC. You can also download a visitor paper application.

Application Fee or Fee Waiver

A nonrefundable $85 fee must be submitted at the time you apply. This can be done by credit card through LSAC or via check or money order included with a paper application.

NOTE: You must secure a fee waiver before submitting your application.

Georgetown Law will not issue a refund of the application fee.


Your resume should describe your work experience, extracurricular or volunteer activities, academic institutions attended, and any academic honors or awards. There is no page limit, though we recommend a one to two page resume.

Personal Statement

All applicants must prepare a “personal statement” describing their background, goals, and reasons for requesting admission as a visiting student. Applicants should also include an indication of the applicant’s intended subject areas of study. Applicants should include any information that they feel will assist the Admissions Committee in its decision. Georgetown Law actively recruits students from diverse racial, economic, and ethnic backgrounds.

Law School Transcript

Applicants must submit their current law school transcript. As Georgetown does not request CAS reports for visiting applicants, please have your transcript forwarded directly to the Office of Admissions from your home institution.

Letter of Good Standing and Permission to Attend

U.S. Educated Visiting Applicants must also submit a letter from the applicant’s degree granting institution authorizing the applicant’s attendance for either one semester or full year and agreeing to transfer the credits earned at Georgetown Law.
