Throughout the year, students at the University of Pennsylvania Carey Law School have the opportunity to participate in important conferences, consortia, and symposia around the world. Our faculty members may also invite students to join them on key meetings, research presentations, and other undertakings overseas.
Waseda Transnational Program
Each March, Penn Carey Law students join student and faculty counterparts from Japan, China, Germany, Korea, and Taiwan for this interactive symposium at one of Asia’s most competitive, innovative, and highly regarded law schools.
Waseda TNP: Same-Sex Marriage
“It was both enriching and rewarding to see facets of your history in another LGBTQ movement as well as discuss critical differences with international colleagues.”
International Legal Research Fellowships
Students seeking to undertake a short-term legal research project abroad have access to summer funding through the International Legal Research (ILR) Fellowship program.
ENGAGE fellowships support law students seeking to take part in internationally focused research projects, conferences, or fact-finding missions under the direct guidance of Penn Law faculty (professors, lecturers, or adjuncts).
Penn Carey Law students have had the privilege to serve as rapporteurs for key sessions of the Salzburg Global Seminar, where they observe the convenings to record summaries, recommendations, and other takeaways from plenary discussions and sessions.
Salzburg Seminar: Combatting Extremism
“Perhaps the most inspiring portion of the session came…when delegates stood to propose new initiatives to bring to their home countries…. The initiatives proposed offer tremendous potential to promote ideals and values key to combatting extremism.”
