The Georgetown Law Research Fellowship is designed for those who are preparing to enter the non-clinical law teaching market. Applicants should have at least a JD or non-US equivalent, and a clear idea of the research projects they would like to work on during the fellowship.

Georgetown Graduate Clinical Teaching Fellows work closely with faculty in the clinical program. Fellows undergo intensive training and practice in clinical pedagogy and client representation. Applicants must be admitted to the DC bar or eligible to waive in, and are encouraged to read the individual descriptions of these fellowships to be sure they apply for those that match their interests. More than 100 former clinical teaching fellows are now in law teaching; many others practice in public interest and other settings.

Many of the institutes and centers at Georgetown Law hire fellows, who typically participate in the substantive work of the institute or center. Some of these fellowships are designed to prepare fellows to work in the relevant law or policy field. Others have a more academic orientation and provide fellows more time for the fellow to work on their own research. Applicants are encouraged to read the individual descriptions of these fellowships to be certain that the fellowship they apply for matches their interests and expectations.

All fellows at Georgetown Law are members of the Georgetown Law Fellows Collaborative. As such, they are invited to the regular Fellows Workshop and Seminar. In the Workshop, fellows have the opportunity to present and discuss their works in progress. The Fellows Seminar provides an introduction to the history of and contemporary trends in US legal scholarship.

Non-U.S. residents who are interested in other opportunities to work at Georgetown Law should consider the Visiting Researcher Program. Visiting Researchers are not fellows and are not automatically members of the Fellows Collaborative.
