Georgetown Law’s Tech Law & Policy Scholars program formally recognizes students’ deep focus in the field.

Tech Scholars participate in two year-long seminars in their 1L and 2L years.  The 1L seminar exposes Scholars to key institutions and organizations that shape technology law and policy, through visitor presentations and faculty-coordinated field trips to federal agencies, Congress, the courts, or private sector and non-profit organizations.  The 2L seminar takes a deep dive into current ethical, constitutional and policy issues relating to technology through bi-weekly sessions taught by members of Georgetown’s technology law faculty.  

Tech Scholars are required to take one Core Course, two Advanced Courses, and four credits in Clinical or Skills-Based classes from the Technology Law curriculum (available here).  Scholars must also complete their Upperclass Legal Writing Requirement in a course related to technology law and policy. 

Admission to the Tech Law & Scholars program is based on a supplemental application submitted following admission to the JD program. For more information and to find a link to the current application, click “Learn More”.
