Appellate Advocacy Clinic

Appellate Advocacy Clinic

The Appellate Advocacy Clinic gives students the opportunity to work in teams on appellate cases.

About The Program

The Appellate Advocacy Clinic of Penn’s Law School opened its doors in the fall of 2019. Students work closely with the clinic faculty and with lawyers who volunteer on a pro bono basis from DLA Piper. They also engage with any public interest groups with whom the clinic is partnering. The course covers all aspects of appellate cases: conducting legal research, writing briefs, communicating with clients, and preparing for oral argument.

 

Announcements

Appellate Advocacy Clinic’s inaugural year a resounding success with students

In its inaugural year, students in the University of Pennsylvania Carey Law School’s yearlong Appellate Advocacy Clinic handled a range of cases in state and federal court, with a particular focus on issues of economic justice in the criminal law context.

Professor Jean Galbraith teaches the clinic with Ilana Eisenstein L’04. Currently a partner at DLA Piper, Eisenstein previously served as Assistant to the Solicitor General in the U.S. Department of Justice, where she regularly briefed and argued before the U.S. Supreme Court. Read more.
