Center on Professionalism


Associate Dean for Career Planning & Professionalism Heather Frattone L’98 discusses
the key facets of Penn Law’s professionalism efforts.

The Center on Professionalism (COP) evaluates and integrates initiatives from across the Law School to ensure that Penn Law graduates are as prepared and competitive for the legal job market as any law graduates in the nation.  Learn more about COP in this recent profile from PD Quarterly.

COP focuses on providing opportunities for students to develop skills needed to embark on successful careers in the profession and as effective leaders and managers. The Center assures that the doctrinal and analytical skills students learn in the classroom, their coursework in legal practice skills, and the practitioner skills they acquire through clinical placements, internships, and pro bono work are complemented by a comprehensive program of professional training and executive development. As a result, at graduation Penn Law students are equipped with a world-class legal education, are highly competitive in the job market, and are practice-ready.

Spring 2014 COP program information available here!
