Supreme Court Clinic: Prospective Clients
Not everyone can afford to pay a team of experienced lawyers hundreds of thousands of dollars to face the US government’s highly specialized Solicitor General’s legal team or a top national law firm before the US Supreme Court. That’s where we come in.
Studies show that parties represented by a Supreme Court specialist, such as the Penn Clinic, are 1.4 to 2 times as likely to prevail as those represented by nonspecialists.
Penn Law is committed to representing the under-served who cannot afford a big law firm. We do this for free both to level the playing field and as part of our educational mission. The Penn Law Supreme Court Clinic, led by experienced and talented lawyers and supported by top law students, welcomes applications for our representation.
Our students work on all aspects of cases, and experienced lawyers redraft and revise all of the students’ work, to ensure a professional final product.
Proper representation before the Supreme Court is important both to you as a prospective Penn Law client and to society in general, as Supreme Court decisions often have lasting impact.
We apologize in advance that we cannot represent everyone since we have limited space for new clients.
