What Students Are Saying

4.03 Average Rating
Georgetown University Law Center is an amazing combination of high quality academics and networking opportunities. Everyday there is something going on..an Alumni cocktail, the book launch of a member of staff, judge, politician etc. There are many activities which target international students where experienced professionals in academia and legal practice share their wisdom to guide our employment pursuits. The international diversity is the number one reason attending this school is the best choice for a global career.

Great location in D.C. The prep is real, and turned me off initially, but it's all about who you surround yourself with. I find that people have a hard time relaxing.
