George Washington University Law School

George Washington University Law School

DC’s oldest law school, still ahead of its time.

For more than 150 years, GW Law students have studied law in the legal and policy center of the United States: Washington, DC. GW Law puts students at the center of the legal world and offers them the theoretical and hands-on expertise to succeed. With world-renowned faculty and a location only four blocks from the White House, GW Law offers students a dynamic, well-rounded legal education. Our students hold externships with the leading policymaking offices and institutions that surround GW Law. They compete in moot court competitions, arguing cases before eminent jurists such as Justice Elena Kagan of the US Supreme Court. Through the Jacob Burns Community Legal Clinics, GW Law students represent actual clients before courts, such as the Maryland Court of Appeals.

Our students are instructed by faculty members who have affected decision making on global bodies, including the International Court of Justice and the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights; served in the Obama and Bush administrations; and held prestigious clerkships, including those with sitting members of the US Supreme Court. The faculty’s connections and expertise prove crucial for students as they map their career paths.

In short, the GW Law experience is rigorous, hands-on, and practical. Our students leave prepared to change the world.
