The TFAS law program was an incredible opportunity that allowed me to experience the exciting and high-stakes world of Washington, D.C., while also studying core issues of constitutional interpretation and the intersection between law and economics. The classroom experience is top-notch and allowed me to explore subjects that are not taught at my law school.” – Andrew Watkins, University of Kentucky College of Law Intern, Office of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell
