Academic & Course Advising

How many credits do I need to graduate?  What is an enrollment unit?  What courses are taught at the law school?

The answer to these and all other questions can be found in the law school Bulletin. The George Washington Law School Bulletin is the governing document of all policies and procedures at the law school. Updated yearly in August, you are expected to become familiar with this document. It is available both online and in hard copy form. Hard copies can be obtained at the Records Office and at our office


Course Selection

We host drop-in hours in the weeks before each Registration period, and presents information to 1Ls and Transfer students regarding strategies for course selection.  We are also always available by appointment for an individual conversation about selecting classes and meeting degree requirements.
