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, Waseda Law School in Japan hosts an international conference on a new cross-cutting topic. Three to five Penn Law students are selected to 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.
Since 2017, Penn Law students have had the privilege to serve as rapporteurs for key sessions of the Salzburg Global Seminar. Penn Law students observe the convenings of Salzburg Seminars to record summaries, recommendations, and other takeaways from plenary discussions and sessions.
Opportunities linked to the Transnational Legal Clinic
Among other projects, students have accompanied Professor Sarah Paoletti to assist in gathering information from refugees in Ghana for The Liberian Truth and Reconciliation Commission, conducted work along the U.S.-Mexico border, and met with stakeholders in Nepal to advance the rights of migrant workers.
