Giving Penn doctoral candidates and medical students an opportunity to learn legal concepts and apply them to their careers is precisely the idea behind the new Certificate in Law program. To earn the certificate, students must satisfactorily complete four law courses, at least three of them at the Law School.

It is the first time Penn Law has offered a certificate to students from other professional schools. The first student to meet the requirements was Nicola Simpson, who is pursuing a Ph.D. in communication at the Annenberg School. She took classes in media law and intellectual property, with an eye toward public policy consulting. “Ph.D programs can be very insular,” says Simpson. “You’re very focused on your own field and your own topic. What I liked about the Law School is that it gave me the opportunity to look at the real world situation in my area of study.”
