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.
Space is still available. Register by July 17.
This course introduces students to the field of "law and economics," including a basic overview of the microeconomic principles at play and how they are applied to the analysis of law during the first year of law school and beyond.
Explore the role of law in the emergence of biotechnology, focusing on important case and statutory law, and discuss cutting-edge issues such as whether a living organism and human genes can be patented.
