"Being at GW Law, in the nation's capital, gives me the opportunity to interact with different people from different backgrounds, which helps me see the law from different angles. The Business and Finance Law program has countless interesting courses that help me improve as a lawyer and connect my previous experiences to the American legal system."

Olivia Araújo, LLM '22

“Having international qualifications helps me distinguish myself in the field.”

Songezo Mabece, LLM, Government Procurement Law, Class of '18

“The people are so friendly at GW Law -- everyone wants to help students, and they want you to do your best and help connect you with other people and give you advice.”

Davron Muslimov, LLM ‘22

“I’d heard from some of my colleagues in the Army, both civilian and military, that [GW Law] had a very solid program, and its location in D.C. meant that it had… networking opportunities with …federal agencies.”

Jennifer Neuhauser, Environmental Law LLM ’15
