Confidential Sources on Trial
The impulse to change the world takes many forms. It could mean joining government and serving as an advocate for the disabled. Or working to protect American's civil rights. Or teaching children about the cherished principles embedded in the Constitution. The following alumni answer the distress signals coming from people in need, and, in doing so, make their corner of the world just a little bit better.

Agents of Change
BY EDWARD N. EISEN, ANDY GREENBERG, JOHN ROSENGREN, AND LARRY TEITELBAUM
The fires of idealism burn brightly here in the home of the ABA Pro Bono Publico Award. We create a culture which encourages service. So it's no surprise when alumni see law as the ultimate helping profession, and a way to change the world — or at least their little corner of it.

What I Did on My Summer Vacation
BY LARRY TEITELBAUM
Before the summer associate job, before plunging into work at a major law firm, before their careers get into high gear, a group of enterprising students spent a summer of discovery in the global village. They learned that the law can heal and restore and reconcile — and they came away with a new appreciation of the American legal system.

Education Without Borders
BY JENNIFER BALDINO BONETT
There is no turning back. More and more, the practice of law requires fluency in other cultures and other legal regimes. Whether working with immigrants or the victims of human rights violations, young lawyers must know how to speak a new language: cross-border law. In the new Transnational Legal Clinic, they are learning how.

Manifest Destiny in the Middle East
BY SALLY FRIEDMAN
Construction cranes are popping up all over the United Arab Emirates as builders such as Hill International create a resort dubbed the "Eighth Wonder of the World" and the Guggenheim Foundation strives to bring great works of art to the Persian Gulf. As usual, Penn Law alumni are smack in the middle of these wondrous projects.
