For Ryan Blackledge, the only Tulane 3L to be adopted by Penn Law, the opportunity to make career connections in Philadelphia was a lucky coincidence: his fiancée is a graduate student at Penn. Although the two have known each other since child hood, this past fall was their first opportunity to live in the same city. “It's been fantastic. We've been long-distance for a while now, so this is really good,” he said.

Vibbert and Valerie Zukin, both second-year students at Tulane, seized the opportunity to participate in Penn's pro bono programs, which they found to be more extensive than those offered by Tulane. “The immigration law clinic here was fantastic,” said Vibbert. “It was a great experience for us because we're both interested in that sort of law, and there's no program like that at Tulane.”

Based on Penn's model, Zukin hopes to create similar programs at Tulane. “The pro bono clinic here is a great opportunity for doing community service,” she said. “I would like to do something like that at Tulane, so that students there have pro bono options right on campus.”
