Chris Segal
Penn graduate student Christopher Segal benefited from the Law Schoolís academic open door policy.
First he found religion, then the law. Christopher Segal, a masterís candidate in the liberal arts program in the College of General Studies, spent last spring in the Law School absorbing Supreme Court decisions over the last half century involving the separation of church and state.

For Segal, who is studying the role of religion in public life, the course was a godsend. It furthered his understanding of the trinity of religion, politics and the judiciary, nourishing his interest in and understanding of religious activism in contemporary society. After completing the class, a light went off in his head ó maybe he should go to law school.
