Now teaching a course in public interest law herself with professor Lou Rulli, she admires Penn Law's vastly expanded public interest program, with summer placements, a scholars' program, an annual conference, and pro bono requirements — a "kind of integrated support for public service that was unimaginable 20 years ago," says Carr.

But if Penn Law offers students the tools to become socially responsible lawyers, Carr says the promise of public service is fulfilled by working with the poor whose lives are shaped by the law.
