Course Description

The D.C. Seminar is one component of the Semester in D.C. Program.
The D.C. Seminar gives students the opportunity to reflect on and learn from their externship experiences, to explore the role of lawyers in the processes of federal law-making, policy-making, lobbying, and dispute resolution, and to learn about Washington career paths by meeting with alumni mentors and other attorneys. The seminar meets in the law school’s D.C. classroom. The three seminar credits will be graded. Grades will be based on class participation, a weekly journal, and a significant paper regarding a legal issue or set of issues relating to the externship. Students enrolling in the D.C. Seminar must also enroll in the D.C. Externship.
