The UCDC Law Program is a uniquely collaborative, full-semester externship program in Washington, DC. The Law Program combines a bi-weekly (every other week) workshop and a Washington DC field placement to offer law students an unparalleled opportunity to learn how federal statutes, regulations, and policies are made, changed, and understood in the nation's capital.

This version of "Law and Lawyering in the Nation's Capital" is a 1-unit workshop being offered to students who are participating in a remote part-time externship with an organization located in Washington DC.

Through the workshop, students will gain an understanding of the practice of Washington lawyering. Students will have contact with three branches of the federal government, independent regulatory agencies, and advocacy nonprofits.

The Workshop, offered to students during the fall and spring semesters, includes law students from UC Berkeley, UC Davis, UC Law SF, UC Irvine, and UCLA.
