Semester in DC Program Information Session


Tuesday, September 3, 2019 12:30 pm to 2:00 pm



Washington, DC is its most beautiful in the spring and you can be there -- living, learning and working – and enjoy it all. UConn Law's Semester in DC Program places students in full-time law and policy internships at a wide variety of federal agencies, legislative offices and committees, and public interest organizations. Last spring, our students worked at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the Department of Energy, HUD, the Department of Justice – Environment and Natural Resource Division, the Senate Judiciary Committee, the House Ways and Means Committee, the National Gallery of Art, and the National Resources Defense Council. Over the past ten years, we have placed students in nearly fifty different legal offices. At this information session, students who participated in the program last spring will describe the placement process and their experiences in DC. They, along with program faculty, will answer questions about the program generally and specific placement opportunities. The Semester in DC application process will be starting soon. Interested students should be sure to attend the information session so that they are in the best position to secure a field placement in DC that meets their educational and career development needs.
