The Global Law Scholars Program
The Global Law Scholars Program (GLS) prepares students for transnational practice in which they regularly encounter problems that involve more than one legal system. The aim is to combine language skills and cultural familiarity with rigorous and directed legal training so that Scholars are ready to practice in the global legal environment of the 21st century. Approximately 20 Scholars are selected each year.
Entering full-time first year J.D. students only may apply. Applicants to the GLS Program must fill out a separate GLS Applicant Form and Foreign Language Evaluation Form. We are now also accepting GLS applications online. You can access the online application here. No preference is given on the basis of application type (paper or online). Applicants may submit GLS Application materials at the same time that they apply to Georgetown Law, or may send them in later, provided they do so before the deadline of February 24, 2017. GLS application materials should not be sent to the Office of Admissions.
