Assistant Director, Office of Student Life - Georgetown University Law Center

Job Overview

The Office of Student Life (OSL) is a vibrant source of programming and events for Georgetown Law students and is at the center of student leadership learning outside the classroom. The Office of Student Life supports and empowers student leaders of 80+ student organizations, as well as the Student Bar Association and Georgetown Law Peer Advisors through programming, events, services, and advocacy. OSL advises all student organizations as they plan hundreds of community-wide events including high-profile speaking engagements, panels, symposia, performances, community-service opportunities, fundraisers, and social activities. The Office of Student Life also provides training, advising, logistical support, and financial management for the Student Bar Association, its more than 50 student members, and the allocation of student organization budgets.

Second, the Assistant Director is the primary advisor to the Student Bar Association Treasurer and the Student Bar Association House of Delegates, the Georgetown Law student governing body which allocates student organization funds.

Third, the Assistant Director serves as an administrative advisor for the Barrister's Council and handles the weekly reimbursement of the travel expenses of the Barrister's Council student members who compete in local, national, and international trial, appellate, and ADR competitions, as well as other planning and administrative functions for Barrister's Council.
