Jewish Law Students Association (JLSA)

The Jewish Law Student Association is a cultural, social, and non-denominational affinity group at The University of Pennsylvania Carey Law School. We work to represent Jewish students and welcome students of all backgrounds and affiliations. Our mission is to build a vibrant community within Penn Law by providing programming of Jewish cultural, social, charitable, legal, and educational significance. We host Friday night dinners, socials, lunch and learn sessions, distinguished speakers, and other events. JLSA seeks to develop an awareness within the campus community of legal issues relevant to the Jewish community and the role of Jewish ethics and values in the professional world. By offering engaging and meaningful programming and by connecting students with other Jewish organizations and alumni, we hope to contribute to the wellbeing of Jewish students at the Law School, the broader Penn community, and the Philadelphia Jewish community in which we operate.
