Additionally, the Law School has developed submatriculation programs on campus with the College, Wharton, the School of Engineering and the School of Nursing. Exceptionally qualified Penn undergraduates may submatriculate in the J.D. program after completion of their junior year in college and complete both the undergraduate and law degrees in a total of six years. Law students may seek approval to take up to four courses in any graduate program at Penn outside the Law School and have the coursework count toward their J.D. degree. The opportunities abound.

The Law School has good fortune – and a good location – on its side to assure the success of these aspirations. The good fortune is that the Law School already boasts a number of faculty who are leaders in each of these cross-disciplinary areas.

Unlike comparable law schools that are part of leading research universities, all the schools to which Penn Law is building bridges are located within a couple minutes’ walk from the Law School. It is easy to get to classes at the other schools and inviting to take advantage of the revitalized neighborhood to meet with colleagues and classmates at a variety of venues nearby. The Law School environment – its faculty, students, administrators, and physical layout – encourages taking advantage of every opportunity the University of Pennsylvania offers.
