Georgetown Law's first-year curriculum is unusual; the school lets students choose between Curriculum A and B. While both curricula cover the same content, Curriculum A consists of traditional first-year classes, while Curriculum B takes a theoretical approach to the material, emphasizing connections between law in history and philosophy. And the enormous size of the school means that students have a wide array of electives to choose from--around 350 upper-level courses.
About Georgetown University Law Center
The first law school founded as a Jesuit institution, the Georgetown University Law Center began with a class of 25 students. Today, it is the second-largest law school in the U.S. and has a laundry list of highly-esteemed academic programs; in particular, its clinical training programs. The school runs 19 clinical courses with around 250 students participating annually, making it the largest clinical program in the country. In addition, the school requires all first-year students to take a weeklong introduction to international law as a part of its international law program. The Global Law Scholars program also allows students to study to practice in another country's legal system concurrently with their U.S. legal studies. Georgetown Law also hosts the Supreme Court Institute, which offers students the opportunity to argue cases in its Supreme Court moot courtroom--an almost exact replica of the real thing--through its moot court program.
