Georgetown University has long had strong academic ties with Europe.

The School of Foreign Service is home to two leading centers dedicated to European affairs, and Georgetown Law operates the Center for Transnational Legal Studies in London, a unique global partnership in legal education that engages students and faculty from 24 law schools across the world.
