Student Life at Penn

A Message from the Dean of Students

Felicia Lin Felicia Lin I’d like to take a minute to share what makes this place special among law schools.

You likely have the choice to go to any number of law schools that will challenge you to think critically and analytically. But the Penn Law experience expands far beyond the classroom.

We are committed to supporting all facets of your professional and personal development by fostering collegiality, innovation, and engagement during your time here.

The Student Affairs team is proud of the Law School’s reputation for balancing an exemplary professional education with a vibrant student life experience. Penn Law students participate in countless extracurricular and co-curricular activities covering a range of interests, from a bowling league to mock trial to our veteran’s club. Each year, more than 90 student groups, clubs, and associations put on hundreds of social events, conferences, speakers, lunches, and dinners.

In particular, our LLM students quickly become an integral part of our community. Your variety of interests, skills, experiences, and career goals add a valuable level of richness and diversity to the Law School. What does this mean for you? It means that being a part of our school gives you the unique ability to take ownership over your legal education and to build the community around you. We hope you will join us!
