Albert Pak L’18
Albert is currently pursuing a JD/MPA at Penn Law and the Woodrow Wilson School at Princeton University. He plans on combining his experience in business, law, and policy to tackle systemic issues in urban communities through both the private and public sectors. Before graduate school, Albert worked as a management consultant for Oliver Wyman, where he specialized in the financial services industry. He then used the skills he had gained as a consultant to help launch 12+, a nonprofit start-up that creates college-going cultures in Philadelphia high schools, where he served as COO and CFO. At 12+, he played an integral role in expanding the organization’s reach from one hundred to over a thousand students. During his time at 12+, Albert also started the Ivy Advantage Academy, a test prep social enterprise that pursues a “double bottom line.” To date, Ivy has donated over $40,000 to education nonprofits in Philadelphia.
At Penn, Albert is a Senior Editor on the University of Pennsylvania Law Review and actively serves in the Christian Legal Society and APALSA. He also volunteers with Penn Law Advocates for the Homeless and Christian Legal Clinics of Philadelphia. During his summers, he worked for Able Lending, an online lending platform for urban entrepreneurs, and Covington and Burling in the firm’s Washington D.C. office. In his down time, Albert enjoys playing soccer, visiting his favorite coffee shops in the city, and rooting for the Sixers. Prior to law school, Albert graduated magna cum laude from the University of Pennsylvania as a dual degree student with majors in Finance and East Asian Area Studies from the Wharton School and the College of Arts and Sciences.
