Kyiv, Ukraine

Due to the quickly evolving concerns around the spread of the coronavirus, we have decided to postpone PLES in Kyiv until Summer 2021 and will announce a new date shortly. This decision does not come lightly and while we are very disappointed, we believe this is necessary given recent events. We apologize for any inconvenience this decision may cause.


Activities will include sightseeing around the city of Kyiv, sampling traditional culinary offerings, an academic discussion, and a gala dinner, as well as plenty of other opportunities for socializing and getting to know your fellow Penn Law alumni!

Please note that this conference is open to ALL Law School alumni -  LLMs and JDs alike (as well as partners and family). As PLES was informally re-named the Penn Law “Everywhere” Society by our President during the 2015 meeting, all alumni from outside Europe are welcome to attend too!

Svitlana Stepaniuk LLM’10 has agreed to serve as the organizer for PLES 2020. Thank you! You may also contact Kim Benenhaley at with any additional questions or requests for more information.
