Parents and Partners Take Ownership of Penn Law for One Day

“I OWN THIS place.”

With that simple declaration to Gary Clinton, Associate Dean for Student Affairs, a decorated alumnus began his career at Penn Law School several years ago.

To this day, Clinton remembers his reaction: “’That’s right. This place is as much yours as anybody else’s.’”

That sense of ownership prevailed as Clinton, retelling the story, welcomed moms, dads, spouses, and partners to the annual Parents and Partners Day.

On their visit in October, families got a primer on the rigors of law school for first-year students. They attended classes, heard administrators tout the value of law school, and listened to students talk about the challenges they face.

“It’s an exciting period to undertake a legal education,” said Penn Law Dean Michael A. Fitts, noting attorneys’ role in almost every substantive issue in the news, including terrorism, civil liberties, bioethics, intellectual property, and diversity.
