University of Georgia launches D.C. law program
ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - The University of Georgia School of Law is launching a new program that allows about 15 students to live and work in Washington, D.C. for a semester while earning course credit.
Law Dean Rebecca Hanner White says the program will launch this spring and will be run by Jessica Heywood, a 1997 graduate of the law school.
Participants will live in housing maintained by UGA and work about 35 hours each week at legal positions with government agencies or major national organizations. Students will also complete a course taught by a professor from a local law school and a clinic seminar class.
White said the program will provide students with a "distinctive legal experience they could gain nowhere else."
