The LAS Board of Managers maintains strong connections with the Law School, its aims, and its outreach through business meetings with the Dean and service on committees dedicated to departments at Penn Law (Public Interest, Career Planning & Professionalism, Post-Acceptance).

The Board also assists in organizing and participating in various volunteer initiatives that serve the Law School, alumni, and current and admitted students.  In addition to the “business” aspects of our Board meetings, members enjoy educational lunchtime panels, opportunities to sit in on classes, tours of the Law School, and other local activities and opportunities to socialize and network.
