The Barco Law Library is open during regular library hours for Pitt Law faculty and students only. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are not open to Pitt users outside of Pitt Law; and we are not open to the public.
Students may choose to register for 4-8 credits and must complete 52 hours of work per credit during the semester (amounting to 15-30 hours/week for 14 weeks). Internships must also: be hosted by a government or non-profit office; consist primarily of policy-related work; be supervised by a professional staff member who does policy work; be unpaid except for a stipend of up to $3,375; and be in the office (no telecommuting).
The Law and Policy DC Semester is offered only during the spring semester. Students can participate in their second or third year. The Spring 2015 Law and Policy DC Semester Courses will include:
Lobbying and Advocacy
A satisfactory grade in this course will be based upon the confirmed completion of the requisite number of hours of work in an externship that meets the DC Law and Policy Semester program requirements.
