Announcing Immediate Opportunities in Washington, D.C.

Announcing Immediate Opportunities in Washington, D.C.

NEW! Effective immediately, students can spend up to a full year in Washington, D.C.!

Recent changes will enable you to pursue several experiential placements and an expanded set of coursework, and enhance student opportunities both during and after law school. And, it’s not too late to spend Spring 2019 in D.C.!

New developments include:

  • The International Rule of Law and Security (IRLS) Program, jointly developed by ASU Law and the McCain Institute for International Leadership, will expand to both Fall and Spring semesters, with additional courses, faculty, and student activities.
  • A growing list of priority placements for ASU Law students from all degree programs includes externships unique to Washington, D.C.
  • Coordinated, pre-arranged housing options, student Metro passes, and additional logistical support for relocating are available.
  • ASU’s D.C. programs are housed in the new Barrett & O’Connor Center, which includes access to the same resources and student services offered in Phoenix, and will host networking and social events for D.C. students and alumni.

ALL students considering Washington DC or interested in learning more about the new opportunities available should e-mail Lauren Burkhart at as soon as possible!

We will add you to informational e-mails, and Lauren will be meeting with students from all classes and degree programs in Phoenix on October 24 and 25. More detailed information will be available at these sessions, as well as Q&A.
