Georgetown is a leader of global legal education.

Offering one of the largest transnational law programs in the world and a Global Law Scholars Program, Georgetown University Law Center prepares students for careers in an increasingly globalized society. J.D. and LL.M. students come to Georgetown from all over the world for a superior legal education that transcends national boundaries. University initiatives like the Center for Transnational Legal Studies in London offer unique opportunities for overseas study. Georgetown’s D.C. location also provides an ideal backdrop for studying law and its practical applications, with access to the Supreme Court, Capitol, federal agencies, and international organizations, and opportunities to serve in clinics, externships, and fellowships.

J.D./LL.M. in National Security Law

The Law Center sponsors this joint degree program, which allows law students with an interest in national security to earn a specialized LL.M. in national security law in addition to their J.D.s.
