The Law School

Experience the International Reach of a GW Law Degree

Last year, more than 300 students from 48 countries found that there is no better place to earn an LLM than at The George Washington University Law School in the heart of Washington, D.C.

With our campus just blocks from the White House, World Bank and International Monetary Fund, U.S. Department of State, Organization of American States, and countless other government agencies, nonprofit agencies, and international organizations, GW Law offers students unmatched networking opportunities to engage in innovative internships and programming throughout Washington, D.C.

Established in 1865, The George Washington University Law School is the oldest law school in the District of Columbia, and has produced some of the finest minds across the spectrum of legal scholarship. That tradition continues today, as GW Law graduates use the knowledge and skills they gain here to influence the critical legal conversations of our times.

The Program

The LLM programs at GW Law allow students to combine traditionally taught courses with in-depth seminars, internships, and skills training for a complete approach to legal education. LLM students take courses with JD students, and the resulting exchange of ideas and perspectives is rewarding for both groups. Graduates of our programs become leaders in business, international organizations, the judiciary, government, and private legal practice throughout the world. Full-time faculty members in each specialized field provide instruction, academic advising, and thesis supervision.
