One hundred and thirty-five students. Twenty-eight travel groups. Thirteen cities.

A large contingent of first-year J.D. and LL.M. students from Notre Dame Law School spread out across the country for three days during winter break to learn about public service in the legal profession and give back to local communities through the Law School’s Galilee program.

Galilee — an acronym for Group Alternative Live-In Legal Education — started at Notre Dame Law School in 1981 when six students and one professor went to Chicago for a few days during break. Since then, Galilee has become an important opportunity for Notre Dame Law students to meet with practicing lawyers in the field and reflect on the direction of their legal careers.
