The Bottom Line

  • Students at Georgetown University are only a stone’s throw away from where actual federal laws are made, which lends to the school’s prestige. That name value combined with an extensive alumni network offer graduates a number of job prospects. The school’s part-time program is unique and allows qualified students with limited time opportunities to follow their legal dreams.
