Semester in Washington D.C. Program
The Semester in DC Program is a new and unique program that places selected UCONN law students in federal agencies, legislative offices or national-level public interest organizations as legal interns for a semester of service.If selected, you'll work near full-time (30 hours a week) in the chosen agency or public interest group. You’ll take an evening seminar to get the basic tools you need to succeed. And you’ll meet on-site with senior staff at a wide range of other federal agencies and major non-profit groups to learn about their life and work. You won’t get paid, but you will get the full complement of 13 academic credits for the term.All in all, it's a great way to build your resume, expand your career horizons, gain valuable contacts and experience, and learn how our government works in the best possible way: by working in or with the government itself. And having experience in government is a huge asset not only in the getting full-time government jobs, but also in the private sector.Click here for further details about the program, and answers to common questions and concerns.Here’s how to apply.
