Building Bridges Between the Professions 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5

Today, Dean Fitts has reinvigorated the Strategic Plan by tightening the focus in five areas for curriculum development, and faculty and student recruitment. In each area we have built bridges to Pennís affiliated schools that connect the Law School to the following disciplines:

Law and Health Sciences

  • School of Medicine
  • Center for Bioethics
  • Department of Bioengineering

Law and Business

  • Wharton School
  • SAS Department of Economics

Law and Technology

  • School of Engineering Arts & Sciences
  • Department of Bioengineering
  • Wharton School

Law and Communications

  • Annenberg School for Communication
  • Annenberg Center for Public Policy

Law and Constitution Studies

  • National Constitution Center
  • SAS Department of History
  • SAS Department of Philosophy

Each responds to the reality that in the 21st century the acquisition, communication and use of knowledge will be even less contained within the boundaries of a single discipline or school than is true today. More than most of its peers, Penn is well positioned for leadership in this context.
