The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law, Columbus, sends about 25 law students to the nation's capital through its Washington, DC, Summer Law Program. The combination internship/summer academic program is so popular at Moritz that aspirants started to line up well before the office doors opened at 8:00 a.m. to allow them to sign up.

"The first people got in line at 3:30 in the morning," says Program Director Professor Peter Swire. There were 25 students—the program's maximum—in line by 7:15 a.m., says Swire. It was "the closest to Bruce Springsteen I've ever felt," says Swire.

As the Clinton Administration's Chief Counselor for Privacy in the U.S. Office of Management and Budget from 1999 to 2001, Swire coordinated policy on privacy issues from inside the White House. Before becoming a professor, Swire worked in the private sector with the Washington office of Powell, Goldstein, Frazer & Murphy from 1986 to 1990.

Swire, who started the Moritz Washington, DC, program with the law school's Dean, Nancy Hardin Rogers, three years ago, offers to use his knowledge of Washington to help law students land internships in a highly competitive market.
