Potential Conflicts

There are many programs at Georgetown that are of interest to students who would like to become Business Law Scholars. Some may be compatible with the Business Law Scholars curriculum; some may not. Please consider these conflicts carefully as you prepare your application and consider your acceptance as a Business Law Scholar:

  • Scholars Programs: Candidates may only accept admission to one of the Scholars Programs
  • Georgetown’s Law Fellow Program: Many second-and third-year students participate in this program. Fellows are required to participate in a weekly seminar and in the writing class they support. These may not conflict with the Mini-MBA or with the Ownership, Leadership and Teams classes, each of which is taken with your cohort.
  • Study Abroad: Semester-long programs may be possible for Business Law Scholars, but full-year programs will not, as there is one required class in year two of the JD and a second required class in year three of the JD.
  • Dual Degree: Students who decide to do a dual degree program will be placed in the cohort that corresponds to the year they will graduate, usually one year after the cohort they were initially accepted into.
  • Externships: Many Business Law Scholars do externships. The work schedule for the externship should not conflict with any required coursework.
