The Catholic University of America

The Nation's Capital

Admissions

 

Washington, D.C., is the ideal setting for the study of law. As the epicenter of the nation's legal institutions, it is home to federal agencies, trade associations, public interest groups, corporations, and hundreds of private law firms.

Studying law in the nation's capital enables students to experience numerous aspects of the legal profession. The city affords daily opportunities to view lawmaking processes firsthand. Students can observe the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives, and regulatory agencies such as the Federal Trade Commission, Federal Communications Commission, and the National Labor Relations Board. The United States Supreme Court and other federal and local courts provide insight into the judicial system. Federal administrative agencies and executive departments permit students to observe at close range the processes of American political and legal systems. The Library of Congress and several other special collections offer the best research resources in the world.

Washington's cosmopolitan downtown section, with its museums, galleries, theaters, parks, pubs, and restaurants, offers students diverse cultural exchanges and social experiences.
