Penn Law launches new website

July 30, 2012

Penn Law has launched its new website, www.law.upenn.edu, designed with an eye for easy, at-a-glance navigation and which showcases the Law School’s vibrant intellectual community, as well as the many rich professional and social opportunities available to law students. Importantly, the new site embeds a host of social networking functionality that allows Penn Law community members to share ideas and content with Penn and global audiences.

New features of the website include:

• “Pipeline” items – on campus and “in the world” call-outs that feature our news, research, media, events, and other information - on the homepage and distributed throughout the website
Tags (e.g. “#ConLaw” “#TPIC,” etc.) used to enhance search functionality throughout the site based on topic, audience, or group (Example).

A new Content Management System (CMS) that allows individuals and departments to quickly, easily, and directly update their sections and pages.
Enhanced social media & networking functionality, so that internal and external site visitors can more easily share Penn Law Pipeline items, events, news, and more on Twitter, Facebook, and other platforms.
A new Academic/Faculty Specialty Areas section focused on the Law School’s academic strengths and scholarly work (Example).
A new calendar/calendaring system, designed to better showcase our many, various events while making it easier for Penn Law community members to add and publicize events on the site.
New student, faculty and staff “Commons” pages that aggregate useful links and info for these respective audiences.

The site will be in a “beta” phase during the month of August, so please submit any comments or questions via the feedback survey.
