Penn Law is focused on cross-disciplinary engagement at every level of the student experience.
Law students engage with a uniquely diverse and collaborative community at the Law School and across the University. Penn people are different. They come here expecting to enjoy their education, and they build a better and more engaging community as a result. Learn more in the entering class profile.
“The beauty of a place like Penn is that aside from the J.D., you have the opportunity to explore whatever it is you want to explore. And I would urge people to think outside of the box…”
- Josh Cox L’14, Certificate in Politics (Fels Institute of Government)
Students are not only academically talented, but also professionally experienced, intellectually inquisitive, and diverse by every measure.
