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.
The Provost has generously made available scholarship funding for current Duke undergraduates to enroll this summer in one-to-three classes in the DC Summer Institute on Law & Policy. You must enroll prior to requesting funding. Please contact Jean Jentilet directly at firstname.lastname@example.org to make your request. Funding will be available on a first-enrolled, first-served basis.
Please consult with your employer or undergraduate institution for all other funding requests.

"Our goal is to provide the students with a window into how lawyers use their training, and what it is like, to ‘practice’ at the highest levels of the federal government— in the legislature, the executive branch, and the judiciary."
