LLM Pro Bono Program

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 Penn Law.

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

New York Bar Pro Bono Requirement

All graduates seeking admission to the New York Bar must complete and document 50 hours of pro bono legal service. For information on New York’s new requirement, please check out this page.

Eligible Hours
