The public service ethos at Penn Law is energized and enriched by the valuable contributions of both current students and alumni. 

Upon graduating, alumni remain an integral part of our vibrant public interest community by providing and supervising pro bono opportunities for students and making themselves available as mentors.  Alumni also participate in the myriad occasions to interact directly with students and fellow alumni during events such as Public Interest Week, the annual Edward V. Sparer Symposium, and year-round programming on the various aspects of lawyering in the public interest.
