A summer opportunity in DC

I received an e-mail today that I thought might interest folks looking for summer opportunities in Washington DC.  Here is full text:

I invite you to identify promising first year law students to take part in the Legal Studies Institute sponsored by The Fund for American Studies.  The Institute, located in Washington, DC, provides students with the chance to gain firsthand exposure to the American legal system through clerkships, academic coursework and career development activities. The 2008 summer program will extend for nine weeks from June 1 - August 3, 2008 in Washington, DC. The Institute offers the following five components:

  • Legal Clerkships: Participants will be placed in an 8-week legal clerkship where they will gain substantive experience in the legal profession. Clerkship sites will include law firms, courts, public interest legal organizations, and the legal departments of trade associations, corporations and government agencies.
  • Seminar on Constitutional Law: Participants will attend a seminar on Constitutional law taught by leading legal scholars, including Dr. John Baker from the LSU School of Law and Dr. Roger Pilon from the Cato Institute.
  • Briefings and Activities: Participants will attend private briefings at institutions of the judicial and executive branches and will meet with prominent judges, lawyers and judicial scholars.
  • Career Development Activities: Workshops will be held to help prepare participants for success in their law careers.
  • Attorney Mentor Program: Each participant will be matched with an experienced lawyer who will serve as a professional mentor.

Applications for the program will be reviewed and accepted on a rolling basis until March 15, 2008. The online application may be found at www.tfas.org/legalstudies.  Space in the program is limited, so applicants are encouraged to apply early.  Housing in furnished apartments located on Capitol Hill is included in the program fee. 

For more information, please contact Steve Slattery at sslattery@tfas.org or 202-986-0384. Fund For American Studies, 1706 New Hampshire Ave. NW, Washington, DC 20009.
