Large but Diverse Opportunities

4.0 of 5 stars

November 2017 | FORMER STUDENT

Uppers

The range of classes and clinical programs is fantastic. Also, the professors are top-notch.

Downers

Can be competitive and the first-year classes are very large.

Comments

The law school is excellent overall and the ability to take classes in a variety of subject-matter areas is great. The clinical programs are some of the best in the country. Also, the range of journals affords many students an opportunity to contribute.

Leader in DC

5.0 of 5 stars

July 2017 | FORMER STUDENT

Uppers

Countless opportunities available to work on the hill and work in government while in school. All star caliber professors. Clinical programs are top notch.

Downers

Class sizes are too large. If someone isn't outgoing, it is easy to get lost in the shuffle. Administrative bureaucracy can be a pain at times..

Comments

When comparing Georgetown with similarly situated schools, consider its location in DC, the opportunities available on and off campus, and the professors that you're able to learn from.

Would You Recommend

Yes

brief review of LLM program

4.0 of 5 stars

June 2017 | FORMER STUDENT

Uppers

the courses are definitely pros for choosing GULC. With the good location of the school, a lot of teachers are adjunct professors from various government agencies, ie., SEC, CFTC. This maximizes the depth of the class and experience a student may get.

Downers

the career advisor is definitely a downside in GULC. They only give a general idea and pays little attention to individual student.

Comments

This is a good school especially when you are seeking to be working in government agencies. And you have to work hard in a greater amount of students and in a little market.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Great Tax LLM Program

5.0 of 5 stars

February 2017 | FORMER STUDENT

Uppers

The adjunct professors (majority of LLM faculty) are subject matter experts in the areas they're instructing. DC is the epicenter for federal tax, and it's no surprise you will get access to the best and brightest minds.

Downers

Most courses are at night, presumably to accommodate the adjunct faculty.

Comments

I have friends that attended NYU, and based on what I've heard from them, I would choose Georgetown again.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Georgetown Law

5.0 of 5 stars

November 2016 | FORMER STUDENT

Uppers

Unbelievable access to DC's practical learning resources. Clinical programs that provide up front experience to develop students before they begin practicing. Elite law school with multiple specialty areas.

Downers

Too many students. Because of the need for student volume, compromising on admissions including lower LSAT scores since 2010.

Comments

If you want to have a wide range of clinical and practical learning opportunities, there is no better school. Around 40% get large law firm jobs and 25% get prestigious public sector jobs.

Would You Recommend

Yes

good for foreign students

4.0 of 5 stars

January 2016 | FORMER STUDENT

Uppers

several kinds of subjects available for students who are interested in learn US laws and legal practices.

Downers

Location: why do we need to study next to Union Station in DC.

Comments

GTU Law is a huge size law school. If you want to study in a small group, you should choose another place. If you want to study in a big class room with many students with several backgrounds, this is for you.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Review of GULC

3.0 of 5 stars

November 2015 | FORMER STUDENT

Uppers

Location (Washington DC), proximity to courts, internship opportunities and quality of professors

Downers

class size, technology needs improvement, student housing, food offered in cafeteria needs improvement

Comments

As one of T14 law schools, GULC is a good choice for students who want to pursue a career in law.

Would You Recommend

Yes

GULC

2.0 of 5 stars

November 2015 | FORMER STUDENT

Uppers

It is in DC so it is cool like that.

Downers

The professors can be awful. They care more about their status than their students.

Comments

To all prospective law students, think twice. G U L C is far from a guarantee of a six figure job upon graduation.

Would You Recommend

No

GULC Review

4.0 of 5 stars

October 2015 | FORMER STUDENT

Uppers

Professors are very engaged, talented and eager to assist students.

Downers

Career Services Department is a bit lack luster. The GULC network is large and it does not seem that career services is on top of tapping into it.

Comments

It is highly recommended that you join a clinic, as they are phenomenal at GULC and will introduce you to great professionals.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Great school

5.0 of 5 stars

October 2015 | CURRENT STUDENT

Uppers

Great professors who are passionate about teaching and leaders in their fields.

Downers

Class sizes are large making it difficult to meet everyone.

Comments

Georgetown is in the heart of DC so taking advantage of the externship or clinic programs is a must.

Yes
