Public service at Penn Law is an essential feature of our legal education and it is rich with interdisciplinary learning opportunities.
Student-led projects continue to form a critical core of the pro bono requirement offering unique leadership and practical experience opportunities while helping underserved populations. Many of the projects also incorporate a cross-disciplinary focus.
Cross-disciplinary study complements public service work in a variety of ways. At a recent Q&A session, a panel of current students and alumni answered questions about how cross-disciplinary programs can help students become holistic service providers.
