UDC-DCSL’s move to a 100,000 square-foot building at the intersection of Connecticut Avenue and Yuma Street NW is profiled in the November 2011 issue of Washington Lawyer.

"We have had way more applicants than we’ve been able to accept for years. We got the highest level of accreditation in 2005, we’ve received honors and top 10 rankings, we are affordable and accessible, we’re in the nation’s capital, and we have a fabulous mission to train public interest, public service, and public policy lawyers,” Dean Broderick said.

This is also the third year UDC-DCSL is offering a part-time program. "[It] is completely mission–driven for us because it means we can open our doors to District residents who are working full–time and have families but really want a law school education and the legal credentials. They need a part-time program that they can both afford to go to and to get into. D.C. has a lot of law schools, but they are among the most competitive in the country and there are plenty of incredibly smart people who can’t afford them. So now we have a public option for them—a public school that is affordable and accessible,” Dean Broderick said.

"Our ultimate goal is to end poverty and inequality, and in order to do that you need more students and faculty and LL.M candidates engaged in the process,” Dean Broderick said.
