The professors are great and the size of the school allows Georgetown Law to offer a huge number of classes. However, the probably greatest benefit is the school's location in Washington, DC. There are so many events, internships and professional opportunities available that you can make the most of your time here both academically and professionally. The only drawback I have experienced is that the law school is separate from the main campus and coordinating between the two is not always easy.

The Graduates career program is more geared towards US trained lawyers or those that are fresh out of school. As an established professional it may be difficult to find it very useful. There is not much in terms of financial aid at the school. However the lecturers are great at what they do being leaders in their field

School is in the best location for students interested in government, public interest, or international work. Pros: knowledgeable and accessible faculty, nation-wide alumni network, wide selection of courses and academic opportunities, prestige, location, large career services staff with a separate public interest career office, and one of the best loan repayment programs in the country. Cons: DC is expensive, popular classes are large, and it could be more diverse.

Georgetown University Law Center has an excellent Law program with a truly international focus. Students here are from over eighty countries, particularly those of us doing the Master in Laws. We share experiences with many JD and US trained students in our classes and as part of campus life. The faculty and administrative staff are supportive and responsive, with world class experience. There is a dedicated Graduate Career Development office that provides career guides, workshops and individualized support to help us with the US market job hunt and internships/externships (although the hiring opportunities for foreign trained graduates are very slim, modestly considered by some alumni I spoke with, to be less than 10% of a class of 200). The only challenge is the general separation if the Law School from the Main campus and ofcourse the cost of education and campus housing. DC is an expensive place, but what can be said for a driven student from an under-represented home region and diverse ethnic background..work hard and search for scholarships like a job!

Georgetown Law is the best program there is for law school: there is no better preparation for a career in politics than this prestigious law school in Washington, D.C.

Georgetown University Law Center is an enriching experience. The curriculum is extremely rigorous and the faculty and professors are extremely approachable and knowledgeable about the course materials. The pros of attending GULC are the network, the credential and the overall quality of education you will receive. The cons are that there is a lack of diversity and the classes are rather large.

GULC is a great law school, with awesome faculty, brilliant peers, a huge alumni base, rigorous academics, and fantastic career services staff. It is very expensive, but they have been very generous with my scholarship amount. Even if you do not get much in grant money, the Georgetown name will help you get a job with a salary that allows you to pay off your loans, and Georgetown's loan repayment program is one of the top programs in the country, for people who want to do non-profit or government work. DC is the perfect location for most lawyers, especially those who want to do government or non-profit work, but there are many large firms here too. The immediate area around the Law Center is not great, but it is very up-and-coming, and campus safety is not an issue.
