Description This two-credit course works in tandem with B 538 (the DC semester externship program) to give students a full ten academic credits for the semester. Each student participating in the DC Semester Externships must enroll in B 539 as well as B 538. This course has several components # five regular writing assignments that deal with legislation, rulemaking, and Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests on subjects of each student#s choosing, a class session of roughly four hours on Friday afternoons every other week in which a combination of advanced legal research aimed at federal legislation and rulemaking and the federal FOIA as well as some administrative law coverage (taught by Maurer faculty and faculty librarians), student presentations about their written products, and interactions during each class period with one or more speakers drawn from alumni/ae working in the DC area in fields of interest to students enrolled for the particular semester. Students should leave this class with a portfolio of short written products suitable to share with potential employers that do not require permission from supervisors or redactions and that match what DC-based lawyers do on a routine basis if they represent clients before Congress, regulatory agencies, or need information from the Executive Branch or independent regulatory commissions.
