Hofstra Law in D.C. (HLDC) Concludes Inaugural Semester

Seven Hofstra Law students participating in Hofstra Law in D.C. (HLDC), a semester-long externship program in our nation’s capital, completed the program’s inaugural semester this fall.

The HLDC students, all in their third year, worked full-time as unpaid legal externs at an approved congressional office or committee, federal government agency, nonprofit organization or public interest group.

They also participated in a companion weekly seminar that explored constitutional, statutory and regulatory issues from multiple perspectives. The seminar was taught by alumnus Scott J. Glick ’81, director of HLDC, and also included guest speakers.

The students earned 13 credits — 10 for their field placement and 3 for the seminar — for successfully completing HLDC.

Two of the students in the program, David Pratt ’14 and Erin Thorn ’14, discuss their experiences working in Washington, D.C.
