Students who have experienced sexual assault, sexual harassment, stalking or any form of relationship violence are encouraged to seek assistance on campus through the Sexual Assault and Relationship Violence Liaison (SARVL). The SARVL coordinates free and confidential sexual assault and relationship violence services for Georgetown Law students.

The SARVL provides crisis intervention and options counseling for students struggling with issues related to interpersonal violence. The SARVL can assist students in accessing the following services:

  • Medical care
  • Student and/or criminal judicial systems
  • Counseling services
  • Safety planning
  • Academic assistance
  • Support groups
  • Housing relocation.

The SARVL is available to talk confidentially with students and friends of students who have experienced sexual assault recently or before coming to law school. It’s never too late to seek assistance. Many survivors find it helpful to speak with a professional and/or join a support group with other survivors. There are opportunities for individual and group counseling available through Georgetown and in the community.
