Course offerings in the 2016 Duke Law D.C. Summer Institute on Law and Policy focus on topics important to current and aspiring practitioners in fields that require mastery of constitutional, statutory, and regulatory law and policymaking. The two sessions this summer are July 11-21, 2016, and July 25-August 4, 2016. Each course is designed to provide an accessible introduction to the pertinent legal and policy subject matter. Those living and working in Washington who are potentially interested in attending law school, or who otherwise seek greater familiarity with the legal framework in a particular field, are especially encouraged to enroll.
“It was the perfect introduction to a law school classroom.” – Tatum Lindsay, Mount Holyoke Class of 2014
In each two-week session, classes will be held Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday evenings from either 5:45-7:15 p.m. or 7:30-9:00 p.m., at the Washington office of premier law firm Jones Day, located in the historic Acacia Building at 51 Louisiana Ave. NW, close to Metro’s Red Line. Wednesday evenings are reserved for special programs, such as events over the last three summers with Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Participants in either or both sessions are invited to attend all of the Wednesday night events.
Please share this announcement with undergraduates and recent graduates interested in law school and/or interning in Washington for the summer, and friends or colleagues who might be interested in our program.
