Kevin Krainz L’13
Kevin, a former youth baseball coach, has no problem stepping up and taking leadership roles in the public interest community at Penn Law. He is currently a board member of the Criminal Record Expungement Project, and in previous years he served on the board of the Prisoners’ Education and Advocacy Project and volunteered with the Immigrant Rights Project. “Team player” doesn’t begin to cover it. Kevin is also pursuing a Masters in Public Administration with the Fels Institute of Government.
After graduating from St. Norbert College in Wisconsin, Kevin spent two years with Cabrini Green Legal Aid in Chicago, first as a volunteer and later as a member of their development and operations department. He credits his time there with sparking his interest in the legal profession. At Cabrini Green Legal Aid, he was “working with clients who faced significant barriers to employment and other benefits because of their race, economic status, or criminal background.” The experience motivated him to pursue a career in public interest, and during law school he has interned at Community Legal Services of Philadelphia, the U.S. Department of Labor, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and Business and Professional People for the Public Interest (BPI Chicago).
