Georgetown Law Gets a Bigger Home

After nearly 50 years on a small part of an extended block near the U.S. Capitol and Supreme Court, Georgetown Law finally acquired an entire block to build-out one of the nation’s largest and most respected law schools.

Congratulations to the faculty and staff for their diligent effort, especially Dean Bill Treanor. Alumni donors have helped create the superblock over the last half century that includes classrooms, workspace, auditoriums, libraries, a sports and fitness center, dorms, and now room for a large and respected group of clinics, centers and institutes.

The lead gift to acquire the remaining south section of the block came from a longtime donor, Scott Ginsburg (L’78), who previously funded the sports and fitness center.

As a former chair of the law alumni association – congratulations. What a great start to 2020, Georgetown Law’s 150th anniversary.
