Semester in Washington Clinic – Apply Now!

Interested in government? Civil rights? Environmental justice? National security? Check out the HLS Semester in Washington Clinic! This clinical program is an extraordinary opportunity to work at the intersection of government, policy, and practice while pursuing your particular interests. Clinic participants spend the spring semester (or winter and spring semesters) living in Washington and working as legal interns in federal offices in the Executive, Legislative, or Judicial Branches. The placements, in offices where lawyers provide legal advice and assistance on policy, legislative, or regulatory matters, are matched to the students’ interests. For example, students interested in topics similar to you have found placements at the Department of Justice, State Department, and Defense Intelligence Agency (to name just a few). To learn more about the program, take a look at the clinic’s iSite  http://isites.harvard.edu/icb/icb.do?key…), where you can find information on the course portion of the program, see the students who have participated in the past and their placements, and more. Finally, if you have any questions or want to discuss how the clinic might help further your goals, you can email the Clinic Director, Jonathan Wroblewski, at  jwroblewski at law.harvard.edu or give him a call at 202-514-4730. He’d love to hear from you!
