Within the vicinity of Georgetown law and Washington D.C., there are a number of governmental law offices, private law offices, and public facilities for law students to set up working relationships or study partnerships, in order to gain working knowledge and a cutting edge in the work of academics and law.

Degrees offered by Georgetown law are Juris Doctor (J.D), Master of Laws (LL.M), and Doctor of Juridical Science (S.J.D).

Other programs, like public interest and clinical programs are meant to give an individual hands-on experience. For those in the public interest programs, these individuals work with smaller groups on community matters and issues of public interest, often advocating for new programs or changes made to current legislation. In the clinical programs, individuals are given the opportunity to work under legal professionals, in order to learn the finer points of law, and how it is implemented in a public or government setting.
