The librarians at the Georgetown University Law Library are available to discuss research strategies and resources for law students writing papers or journal notes/comments. Law students are also welcome to request a research consultation for a legal research refresher (e.g., in preparation for the first-year legal research and writing exam, summer work, graduation). This service is available only to Georgetown Law students.

Consultations are generally scheduled Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. We are happy, however, to make special arrangements for students who cannot come to the Library during these times. Please indicate the need for these accommodations in your request. If you do not receive a confirmation email within one or two business days, please contact (or to report the problem.

If your question involves international or foreign topics, use our Foreign & International Law Form.
