Duke Law School's DC Summer Institute

DUKE LAW<br />
              D.C. Summer Institute

Course offerings in the 2019 Duke Law D.C. Summer Institute on Law and Policy focus on topics important to future law students and lawyers in fields that require mastery of constitutional, statutory, and regulatory law and policymaking. The two sessions this summer are July 8-18, 2019, and July 22-August 1, 2019.  Each course is designed to provide an accessible introduction to the pertinent legal and policy subject matter. Those who are potentially interested in attending law school, or who otherwise seek greater familiarity with the legal framework in a particular field, are especially encouraged to enroll. 

Registration is now open.

In each two-week session, classes will be held Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday evenings from either 5:45-7:15 p.m. or 7:30-9:00 p.m.*, at Duke in DC, located at 1201 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, close to several Metro stations. Wednesday evenings are reserved for special programs, including a public conversation between U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Professor Neil Siegel.  Participants in either or both sessions are invited to attend all of the special events.

Session One: July 8 – July 18, 2019
Session Two: July 22– August 1, 2019
