Pro Bono Service for LLM Students

As integral parts of the LLM program, public service and pro bono provide students with important opportunities to develop their professional skills while learning more about the communities that exist beyond the walls of the University of Pennsylvania Carey Law School.

Though not a graduation requirement, LLMs are welcome and encouraged to take part in Law School approved pro bono work.

Eligible Hours

LLM and JD pro bono have the same guidelines. For more information please look here. Students can log their hours using the Law School’s online tracking system, Replicon.
