Toll Public Interest Scholars

This challenging program is for select students seeking academic training and practical experience in public interest law. Scholars are selected upon admission to Penn Law on the basis of their demonstrated commitment to public service, their academic record, and their potential for leadership in the legal community.

Through funded summer internships, specialized coursework, and interaction with practitioners, academics, and like-minded students, the Program facilitates the development of professionals who are committed to fulfilling their public and professional responsibilities as lawyers. The Program’s graduates have gone on to serve in leadership roles at a variety of agencies including the United States Department of Justice, the Legal Aid Society of New York, the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund, the Bronx Defender and other leading policy organizations.
