Semester in DC

Pitt Law’s Semester in D.C. Program offers you a different kind of semester. If you want to gain real world, full-time experience working in your specialty area, have a particular interest in policy or government-related work, or would like to work in Washington, D.C. after graduation, the Semester in D.C. Program could be for you.

Through the Semester in D.C. Program, you get a semester's hands-on experience practicing law and policy by interning in Washington, D.C. for a government or non-profit employer. You'll also obtain training and credentials in your field, meet regularly with your assigned alumni mentor and other Washington-area alumni and practitioners, and learn about the incredible range of jobs in government agencies, on the Hill, and in lobbying firms, non-profit organizations, professional associations, and private firms and companies.
