Washington, D.C., is the ideal setting for the study of law. As a student at The Catholic University of America Columbus School of Law (Catholic Law), you are within easy reach of the enormously beneficial study, externship, and networking opportunities that come with earning a J.D. in the nation’s capital. Studying law in the nation’s capital affords students the chance to experience numerous aspects of the legal profession. Students can observe Capitol Hill in action, or earn class credit via externships with vital regulatory agencies such as the Federal Trade Commission, the Securities and Exchange Commission, Federal Communications Commission and the National Labor Relations Board, to name just a few.
Individually and collectively, our students excel. They earn fellowships, externships, and scholarships; some also publish in law journals. Our Moot Court and Trial Teams earn accolades in competitions across the country. Catholic Law students advocate for live clients through our various legal clinics and externships, proving daily the truth of the ancient maxim: I do and I understand. Catholic Law’s Washington, DC, location allows for year-round quality externship opportunities that those outside the district only have during summer breaks.
