Georgetown Law Open on Time
The Law Center will open on time, Tuesday, January 27, 2015, but liberal leave is in effect.
All designated emergency employees must report to work on time. All other employees may take unscheduled leave, but should contact their supervisor to discuss the needs of their unit and individual circumstances. Classes will begin at their normal time, unless otherwise noted on the class cancellation line: 202-662-9446 or the class cancellation page. Any changes to this announcement will be communicated through the same channels by 5:00 am on Tuesday morning.
Legal Writing and Student Scholarship
At Georgetown Law, preparing students to practice law is paramount. The legal profession of the twenty-first century is driven by an increasingly global economy and rapid technological advances, yet basic research and writing skills are still the lawyer’s essential stock in trade. Employers, too, recognize that these skills are as critical as ever to being a good lawyer.
For more than twenty-five years, Georgetown and its experienced faculty have been committed to providing the progressive and sophisticated training that students need to be successful in a competitive legal market.
At Georgetown, all J.D. students take a year-long introductory course in legal research and writing as well as an upper class seminar or clinic that involves extensive supervised writing. In addition to these two requirements, Georgetown provides students with an abundance of upper level research and writing opportunities.
