Graduate Legal Education
GW Law’s graduate programs combine exceptional teaching, innovative programming, and a diverse student body to offer you a world-class education in the heart of the nation’s capital.
Washington, D.C. Location
The law school is four blocks from the White House, across the street from the International Monetary Fund and World Bank, and within walking distance of the U.S. Department of State, federal courts, Big Law, and nongovernmental agencies. GW Law places students at the center of the most dynamic legal activity in the United States.
Our programs combine traditionally taught courses with seminars, externships, and skills training for a holistic approach to legal education. Many programs are designed to prepare international students to sit for the bar in U.S. states. Both U.S.- and non-U.S. law school graduates take virtually the same academic courses, providing an atmosphere of diverse experience and interchange within the classroom.
Our accomplished faculty members are among the most frequently cited and sought-after legal scholars in the nation. As both dedicated scholars and respected practitioners, our faculty bring their world-class expertise and professional connections into the classroom.
Established Alumni Network
With more than 28,000 alumni working in more than 100 countries, GW Law can connect students with a vast network of mentors, career advisors, and contacts in virtually every area of practice.
