MEEKER INHERITS ADMISSIONS POST (cont'd)

HOW HAS RECRUITMENT CHANGED?

Technology. The way we communicate. Our applicants are so sophisticated, technologically savvy and very visually-oriented. Law schools are now upgrading their Web sites because we’re dealing with a different generation.

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO RECRUIT INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS FOR THE LL.M. PROGRAM?

Primarily because the practice of law has become more global – another result of the Internet. Students who are going on to become attorneys have to be more sophisticated today, have a broader understanding of the world, of business, of technology and international affairs. Law has never been an isolated discipline, but it’s become even broader, so it’s important to be among people from different countries to gain new perspectives and insights.

HOW ARE YOU GOING TO PUT YOUR STAMP ON THE JOB?

Being personally involved really makes a difference to students, and that’s really important to me. Every student who’s here is going to know who I am because I make an effort to get to know everyone who is admitted to Penn Law. If I haven’t met with them personally, I’ve probably spoken to them over the telephone. They’re not just going to get a form letter from the dean of admissions. Also, I want to continue to help solidify Penn Law’s identity as the best school today to get a legal education that is rich in cross-disciplinary opportunities.
