Students Organizations

Students at GW Law are active and involved members of their academic community. Over the years, they have established a number of organizations that reflect their diverse interests and concerns. These organizations play an important role beyond that of fostering camaraderie. By sponsoring speakers and panel discussions and encouraging dialogue on a wide variety of legal issues, the activities of the Law School's student organizations have become an important extension of the curriculum. Through these organizations, students also make significant contributions to the Washington, DC-area community.
