“I never could have expected how much my overseas experience helped me in my interviews… I was able to develop an international sensitivity and learn how to approach foreign clients on different matters.”


“The highlight of my experience was learning about a judicial system very different from ours…seeing the ways that that concepts we learned as 1Ls here at Penn are relevant even in very different jurisdictions was exciting”


“Penn Law’s international network is truly exceptional. I feel my opportunities to work abroad in the future and to connect with Penn Law JD and LLM alums working abroad are unlimited.”


“I have no doubt that my international experiences at Penn Law will shape my career as I move through it.”


“I admit that I was initially daunted by living in a foreign country…But every day, I could not have been more enthralled by the law, nor more grateful for the professional experience of a lifetime.”
