A GROUP OF Philadelphia public school students received a crash course in the finer points of law school last February during Communiversity Days. Area youths heard presentations by Associate Dean of Admissions Derek Meeker and Assistant Dean Susan Feathers, head of the Public Service program. In addition, they attended mock law school classes taught by assistant professors of law Wendell Pritchett and Catherine Struve. The aim of the program, initiated at the University in the mid-1990s, is to encourage inner-city youths to pursue higher education.
