Completing the Penn Law Certificate in Technology was one of the most beneficial things I did in my first year at Penn Law. I have been asked about the certificate in every single interview, and I have been able to use it to prove that I have proficiency in Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Word, and Adobe Acrobat.

The Center on Professionalism’s Certificate in Technology provided me with a plethora of information and practical skills that will be invaluable to me in the fields of law and business. I highly recommend this course to law students looking to get a jumpstart on their computer skills and sharpen their core technical competencies.

Self-care and wellness is something I prioritized in my life. The “Wellness and Balance” talk was a nice reminder that we have to intentionally continue to do the things that sustain our whole selves despite the stress of class now and our careers in the future.
Jacob Morton L ’19
The entire Professionalism Day program reminded me that professionalism is not just about marketability or personal “brand.” True professionalism is the lifelong practice of sincerity, temperance, hard work, and generosity. It’s a work of art, not merely a set of mechanical skills.
