Stroll the campus, and you’ll find award-winning architecture and green spaces. Enter our academic buildings, and you’ll find faculty and students engaged in groundbreaking research and scholarship. Enjoy world-class cultural activities or work-out at our premier sports facilities.

Leave campus and you’re minutes from Center City, Philadelphia where many law students live – and, equally importantly, where many students have opportunities to apply the law in many real-world applications through clinics, public interest, student organizations and other activities.

It’s no wonder that our students graduate surprised at how much they like Philadelphia, the fifth-largest city in the nation. Philly is a very livable city, known for its friendliness, neighborhoods, and restaurant scene – and, of course, arts, culture and sports. It is also an historic city that is at the forefront of healthcare, technology and education. And, it is affordable.

Located on an Ivy League campus prolific in groundbreaking research and scholarship within a historic city at the forefront of healthcare, technology and education, Penn Law is an ideal home base for students interested in studying the real-world application of the law across disciplines.
