Who May Apply
Only applicants who will possess a U.S. baccalaureate degree from an accredited college or university or the equivalent from a foreign institution prior to registration day are eligible for admission to Georgetown Law as candidates for the degree of Juris Doctor or any of the Joint Degree programs. J.D. candidates may apply for admission to the Full-Time Division, the Part-Time (Evening) Division or "Both."
The American Bar Association (ABA Standard 504) requires that we advise applicants that there are character, fitness, and other qualifications for admission to the bar and encourage each applicant prior to matriculation in a Juris Doctor (J.D.) program to determine what those requirements are in the state(s) in which the applicant intends to practice. For more information, please visit the American Bar Association website at http://www.americanbar.org/aba.html. Bar-related information for our admitted students is available here.
