Summer Law Programs

at Home & Abroad

Welcome to WCL's Summer Programs. For over 20 years, American University Washington College of Law has been training students and practitioners in emerging legal fields. We provide students and practitioners with expert instruction, intensive training, and networking opportunities with some of the most influential people in their respective fields of law.

Due to current travel restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, WCL will not offer any faculty-led summer abroad programs including international travel. Please visit individual program webpages for information on online offerings for summer 2021.

Most D.C. summer courses will take place online. We hope to offer some on-campus courses or a combination of online and face-to-face teaching. The university will continue to evaluate the best approach for the summer 2021 classes based on safety conditions and health guidance, and we will provide updates as soon as possible.

Online classrooms will allow for face-to-face collaboration with classmates and faculty in real time using a variety of features including small group break-out rooms and live chats. In addition, you will complete self-paced, engaging coursework that you can access 24/7 on our convenient online platform.
