Matthew Parker L’00
I am from Batavia New York (in between Buffalo and Rochester). Before working at Penn Law I worked as an attorney at a large law firm.
I was a student at Penn Law and missed it since the day I left! The energy and atmosphere here are amazing and I jumped at the chance to work a group of intelligent and motivated colleagues, faculty and students.
I love how it brings me into contact with students from all over the world, as well as allows me to work with our incredible faculty members and administrative staff. The variety keeps things very interesting.
Ever since I went through it myself, I remain a huge fan of our graduation ceremony. The incredible setting and the positive emotions from students and families is great.
I could not do what I do without the support of my talented, professional and affable colleagues. It is also a pleasure to work with students, colleagues and faculty who really understand what is special about this place and who want to work to make it even better.
My office is responsible for our Legal Education Programs, which brings non-JD and non-LLM students to Penn Law. I love bringing a whole new group of people into the community. Through the LLM Program I am also privileged to help spread the word about Penn Law to all four corners of the globe. Part of what makes these programs attractive is our collaboration with Wharton which allows LLM students to take the Wharton Business and Law Certificate. This program is unlike any other offered at any law school in the world.
I enjoy going to renaissance fairs. Let merriment abound!!
My career goal is to be a Penn Law lifer, and I hope to play some role in making the time students spend at Penn Law the best time of their lives.
