Georgetown aspires to be a leader in global 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.

Nicholas J. Diamond, an adjunct professor at Georgetown Law recently published a blog for the O‘Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law in which he discusses the conclusion of eight-year-long WTO disputes concerning Australia’s plain packaging law for tobacco products.
