Friends of the Law Library
Thanks to the generosity of the members of the Friends of the Edward Bennett Williams Law Library program, the Georgetown Law Library is thriving. Through this program our alumni and friends help the Library provide exceptional collections and services.
Until further notice, we are not taking new applications for the Friends of the Law Library program. Please stay tuned for updates. We hope to continue this program when we resume regular business operations.
