GW Law

4.0 of 5 stars

June 2015 | CURRENT STUDENT

Uppers

Exposure to both top public sector and firm opportunities; Professors are top of their field and easily accessible. The facilities are top notch and there is a lot of opportunities for extra-curriculars, particularly clubs.

Downers

Class size is huge and makes lectures much more impersonal. The career center could be much better and the staff in particular is pretty mediocre. GW continues to grow its class sizes which makes it harder on current students to obtain the same level of opportunities with the school.

Comments

Good school with great opportunities but I would not consider going here unless you have at least a half-tuition scholarship. The high costs when compared to the benefits don't make it worth as much as it is set out to be.

4.0 of 5 stars

May 2015 | FORMER STUDENT

Uppers

Downtown D.C. location, close proximity to federal government, quality adjunct professors

Downers

Poorly kept facilities, substandard IT services, high tuition, less-than-helpful CDO

Comments

GW Law provides a quality legal education, but it would be nice to see students' tuition used to improve facilities. Like many large law schools, competition at GW is tough, and the CDO tends to only care about placing its "top" students, as defined by class rank and journal position. That being said, there are some great professors and courses, and there are many opportunities to receive a practical legal education through federal government internships and student legal clinics.
