Washington, D.C., provides
the perfect venue for an intensive study of justice. D.C. is the forum for the
most ardent political and social debates surrounding justice and home to the
experts and institutions that lead the system. Through the Washington Semester
Program, you get a rare look inside these organizations and meet personally

The semester adds up to an exciting, once in a lifetime opportunity to gain a
thorough and meaningful understanding of the American justice system and its
impact on the everyday lives of citizens.
Take a close look at how
the legal system really works and at the people who define justice. Understand the
myriad institutions and organizations which contribute to making, executing and
interpreting the laws, rules and regulations by which we govern ourselves. Leap
into the political storm that surrounds issues of justice and meet the experts
that deal with the process on a daily basis.
