Students work with federal agencies and public interest organizations in the nation’s capital under the supervision of professor Steven P. Solow, a former chief of the Environmental Crimes Section of the U.S. Department of Justice and currently co-head of Katten Muchin Rosenman LLP's environmental practice. Placement may be with the U.S. Department of Justice, Environmental Protection Agency, Department of the Interior, Environmental Law Institute, National Academy of Public Administration, White House Council of Environmental Quality, or other government agencies or NGOs.

The D.C. Externship provides students with an opportunity to work with government agencies and non-profit organizations in Washington full-time over a seven-week period, beginning in early June each year. Students participate in a primer on federal regulatory programs at the Elisabeth Haub School of Law prior to departing for Washington. Once there, students attend a two-hour class each week, in addition to their full-time externship position. Application during the fall semester and permission of the professor is required.
