Students registering for this Practicum (formerly a part of the Legislative Practicum/Congressional Externship), which is coordinated with concurrent registration in the Legislative/Congressional Workshop, will participate directly in the work of Congress in the form of a practicum or field placement. As a result, students will have the opportunity to expand on their knowledge of Congress by exploring the types of activities, from legislative drafting to political negotiation, that characterize lawyering in a legislative context. Students will be expected to work two full days each week throughout the semester in a congressional office and to attend a two hour class each week. The class is Legislative/Congressional Workshop (2) which must be taken concurrently. Students will be interviewed by Ms. Fleischer prior to placement in a congressional office. Students must register for both the Legislative/Congressional Practicum and the Legislative/Congressional Workshop in the semester in which the work will be done. Grading for the Practicum is on a Credit/No Credit basis.
