Pre-Law Advising at Georgetown University

Pre-Law Advising Appointments

Pre-law advising appointments are 30-minute meetings for juniors and seniors. In an advising session, the pre-law advisor can, among other things, help you to decide whether law school is right for you, answer questions regarding the law school application process, review your resume and personal statement and help you to generate a list of law schools that fits your needs. Schedule a pre-law appointment in Handshake.
