The College of Law’s Semester in D.C. Program Spring session will begin on January 12 with 18 students participating in externship placements across the legal spectrum and throughout the greater Washington D.C. area. The Program combines intensive professional experience as part of a legal team with unique course work, including a bi-weekly guest lecturer, to develop an understanding of how lawyers function in our nation’s capital
The first weekly seminar will be held in the Pentagon, featuring Distinguished Guest Lecturer Joseph A. Rutigliano Jr. L’86, Branch Head, International & Operational Law Brand, Judge Advocate Division, U.S. Marine Corps.
“Civilians are not often able to gain entrance to the Pentagon. The DC Program and the College of Law thanks Mr. Rutigliano for hosting our group in this Washington landmark. It will be a great way to kick off another semester in the nation’s capital preparing our students for their legal careers in a highly practical manner,” said Terry L. Turnipseed, Director of the Semester in D.C. Program and Professor of Law.
