Washington D.C. Semester-in-Practice Program

Through our new DC Semester-in-Practice Program, students can earn academic credit while working full-time in a government, non-profit, or trade association setting. While in D.C., students will gain practical experience and training, meet and network with D.C. attorneys including established RWU alums, and explore the many ways that a J.D. degree is used in our nation's capital. This program provides an ideal opportunity for RWU Law students who are considering working in Washington D.C. after graduation to explore and plan for their future. Professor David Zlotnick will work with each student to arrange a placement that fits their personal goals. Students will earn 12 clinical externship credits working in their placement and an additional 2 graded credits for a two-hour weekly seminar taught by Professor David Zlotnick, now based full-time in Washington, working in the Office of Enforcement at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission where he also serves as the Training Coordinator. Professor Zlotnick has over twelve years of experience in the DC Legal Market including as a judicial clerk, law firm associate, federal prosecutor, public interest lawyer, professor and now as a regulatory lawyer.
