About The George Washington University Law School:
With its 145-year history and location in the heart of Washington, D.C., GW Law consistently ranks among the top law schools in the United States. The school’s faculty comprises nationally and internationally recognized experts in their fields who are both dedicated teachers and prolific scholars. The student body of about 2,000 is made up of academically gifted individuals with diverse backgrounds who come from virtually every U.S. state and approximately 50 other countries. With more than 250 elective courses, GW Law has one of the largest curricula among U.S. law schools, and J.D. and LL.M. students take courses side-by-side. Because of the school’s location in the U.S capital, students have unparalleled opportunities to learn from experts in the private, government, and nonprofit sectors, and to pursue internships and many other experiential learning experiences.
While GW Law’s reputation is established in the local and national legal communities, the school’s influence is apparent outside of the United States as well. Each year, more than 100 highly qualified graduates of non-U.S. law schools enroll in the school’s LL.M. degree program in either general legal studies or one of seven areas of specialization: Business and Finance, Environmental, Government Procurement, Intellectual Property, International & Comparative, Litigation and Dispute Resolution, and National Security and U.S. Foreign Policy Law. In addition, GW offers summer programs in Munich and Oxford, and exchange programs with the University of Augsburg (Germany), University of Groningen (the Netherlands ), Universitá Commerciale “Luigi Bocconi” (Italy), and the North American Consortium on Legal Education (Canada and Mexico). These programs serve to enrich the school tremendously both in and outside of the classroom, with students from around the world bringing a broad range of perspectives and experiences to share with their U.S. counterparts.
