Penn Law at a Glance
The essence of Penn Law
Penn Law's strengths - a superior legal education enhanced through cross-disciplinary studies and our deserved reputation as a congenial and stimulating environment - are reflected in all that we do.
A First-Rate Faculty: Our faculty, an outstanding group of leading scholars in every major area of law, defines Penn Law's intellectual vitality. More than 70 percent hold advanced degrees and more than half have joint appointments or are affiliated with other of the University's great schools and departments. Students find Penn Law’s faculty accessible and engaged with their students, creating a dynamic learning environment.
Strength in Cross-Disciplinary Studies: Penn Law has created a cross-disciplinary program that is unrivalled among the leading law schools. Recognizing that lawyers of the future will be well-versed not only in legal tradition but also in the broader fields of our society, Penn Law has embraced its relationship with the finest array of graduate and professional programs in the nation. LLM students can take a class at one of Penn’s professional and graduate schools such as Wharton, the Annenberg School for Communication, the Center for Bioethics program and others throughout the University campus.
Students Thrive at Penn Law: While Penn Law is consistently ranked in the top 10 law schools in the United States, Penn Law takes equal pride that is ranked third in a national survey in student satisfaction. Our students overwhelmingly responded that if they had to do it over again, they would choose to come to Penn Law.
