The Future  

The ambitious goals set forth in the University of Pennsylvania’s Agenda for Excellence and the Law School’s Strategic Plan in the late-1990s are being achieved according to plan and schedule. As a result, the Law School has been energized with the addition of new faculty members, and diverse students eager to expand their knowledge through studies in law and other professional disciplines, and through innovative modifications to the curriculum.

The joint endeavors of the University and the Law School to build bridges between the schools and to ease the process of taking advantage of these resources have been successful. Penn Law students learn and graduate ahead of the curve. The training and education that they receive at Penn positions them well to become leaders in the profession.

For many, the interdisciplinary knowledge they’ve mastered, combined with the critical thinking skills they’ve acquired, will give them an advantage in their careers. We already see it in the alumni of Penn Law School who are changing the legal profession with entrepreneurial vigor and becoming leaders of innovation within the profession.
