D.C. Summer Institute on Law and Policy

The Duke D.C. Summer Institute offers short courses taught by Duke Law faculty on topics of broad interest to college and graduate students, as well as professionals working in D.C. Launched in 2013, the Institute is designed for individuals considering law school or careers in the public sector and others interested in how the law shapes policy and regulation in the United States. It's a wonderful complement to Capitol Hill and other D.C.-based positions and summer internships.
