LAW SCHOOL WASHINGTON PRACTICE PROGRAM
If you will be working in or near Washington, D.C., this summer, plan to participate in the Law School's Washington Practice Program. The program is a series of receptions, seminars, and discussions held during lunch in June and July. It is designed to acquaint IU Law students with the nature and range of practice in Washington, D.C., and to expand their networks of contacts with IU Law alumni, other practitioners, and senior government officials. These sessions offer insights for job opportunities, effective ways to prepare for various kinds of positions, and suggestions for being a successful practitioner. Washington practice has some unique characteristics, and this program provides an insider's perspective. The program is available for course credit as well as on a non-credit basis.
In the inaugural offering in 2003, participants, among other things, met with former U.S. Representative Lee Hamilton, JD'56; met with S. Jay Plager, senior judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit and former dean of the Law School; and were hosted for lunch by senior partners at Jones Day, Arnold & Porter, and Akin Gump for discussions with groups of alumni engaged in practice with law firms, government agencies, congressional committees, and NGOs.
The 2004 program will start with a reception hosted by Dean Robel for D.C.-area alumni and current students. We hope to facilitate a series of small group lunches, matching alumni in particular areas of practice with students with an interest in those areas. To sign up for the program, or for more information, contact Professor Barnes, who will lead the program again this year, at firstname.lastname@example.org. You might also want to contact current students who participated last year: Megan Stiffel, Jeanette Hannah-Ruiz, Rodney Hunter, Sabeka DuBose, Freedom Smith, Jeffrey Hyman, Katherine Lemon, and Layne Keele.
