3L: Co-Curricular Opportunities

Co-Curricular offerings are defined as: non-law classes, externships, independent study, being a Littleton Fellow, journals, and moot court activities. These offerings generally represent ways for Penn Law students to engage in a variety of academic endeavors outside of the traditional classroom setting. JD students have a CAP on the number of co-curricular opportunities they can pursue.  For information on the credit cap, please go here.

As a general note, 3Ls can pursue the widest range of Co-Curricular opportunities (such as assuming a leadership position on a journal, or serving as a Littleton Fellow). The below links provide some guidance on many of these opportunities.
