Explore the Power of Penn Impact Report

Did you know that the recently concluded Power of Penn Law Campaign was the Law School’s most successful fundraising and engagement effort to date? Thanks to the support of our amazing community, we were able to expand cross-disciplinary opportunities, increase access to our first-class academic experience through financial aid, broaden pathways to service for students who will change the world for the better, and recruit a diverse cohort of faculty engaged in cutting-edge legal scholarship.

We invite you to explore the campaign Impact Report, which highlights some of the many ways alumni and donor support has inspired innovation at the Law School and propelled our vision for legal education. Thank you for everyone who supported us - you are the Power of Penn Law!

Alumni Spotlight: Matthew Erie L’08 – Insights from a Oxford Law faculty member on developments in Asian Law

Join us for this online chat with Matthew Erie L’08, Associate Professor, Member of the Law Faculty, and Associate Research Fellow of the Socio-Legal Studies Centre at the University of Oxford. During this interactive discussion, Dr. Erie will reflect on: his formative international experiences at Penn Law, his road to legal academia, and recent research updates. Erie’s comparative law work combines law and anthropology, with a particular focus on Asian law. He is Co-Chair of ASIL’s Asia-Pacific Interest Group. His recent research project, “China, Law and Development,” a multi-year cross-disciplinary project funded by the European Research Council (1.5 million euros), examines how China is shaping global legal norms. This discussion is part of the Summer Alumni Spotlight Series. (Feel free to bring your lunch.)
