On Oct. 2, 2014, Hofstra Law in D.C. (HLDC) students met with top officials in the FBI’s Weapons of Mass Destruction Directorate, including the chief for national policy, and toured the headquarters building in Washington, D.C.
There are six students participating in HLDC this semester. The semester-long externship program offers third-year students the opportunity to work full-time as an unpaid legal extern at an approved congressional office or committee, federal government agency, nonprofit organization or public interest group.
HLDC students also take the seminar Law and Policymaking in Washington, D.C., taught by HLDC director and alumnus Scott J. Glick ’81.
This semester, the HLDC students and their field placements are as follows:
Brittany Albaugh, Standing Committee on Law and National Security, American Bar Association
Alex Carrion, U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement, U.S. Department of Homeland Security
Claunick Duronville, Office of U.S. Rep. Charles Rangel
Julia Elmaleh-Sachs, Democratic National Committee
Alex Lovejoy, Environment and Natural Resources Division, U.S. Department of Justice
