The Law Lab has an unconventional structure. 


We began meeting in 2020, and our lab meetings have so far been hosted on zoom. Presenters and participants come from Georgetown, as well as many other locations, from the U.S. and abroad.

When we begin convening in-person in D.C., the meetings will remain similarly accessible!
