An anthropologist turned patent lawyer. A financier and public school reformer. A
maverick trial court judge. A president of an expanding retail chain. The head of one of
Pennsylvania’s oldest family businesses. And, two leaders in American higher education.
These are the graduates of the University of Pennsylvania Law School. In the last decade
Penn Law School alumni have assumed positions of leadership in the legal profession and,
with increasing frequency, in fields beyond the law. Over and over again what unites them
is their belief that the intellectual training they acquired at Penn opened up unforeseen
doors of opportunity throughout their impressive careers. There are thousands of graduates
who are enjoying vigorous and challenging careers across the disciplines. In the following
pages you’ll read about seven such graduates who have lived up to the potential that a Penn
Law School degree allows and who have brought pride to their alma mater.
