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

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

"My studies at GW prepared me exceptionally well for my current role. One course in particular covered every substantive topic I deal with on a day-to-day basis and helped distinguish me from other applicants.”

Matthew Conrad, LLM ’13

“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.”
