Alumni newsletter from Penn Law Clinics

Message from the Clinic

Welcome to our inaugural Clinic Alumni E-Newsletter! We hope this letter will share our news, and more importantly, allow us to find out about and feature your latest exciting accomplishments. The Gittis Center for Clinical Legal Studies at Penn Law continues to grow in depth and breadth. We’re excited to share stories here from three of our clinics, the Civil Practice Clinic, the Interdisciplinary Child Advocacy Clinic, and the Entrepreneurship Legal Clinic, as well as a feature story on one of our many star students. Look for stories from the other six clinics in upcoming editions.

In addition to sharing with you what we’ve been doing here in Philadelphia and across the world, we also hope this newsletter will serve as a catalyst for you to share with us your own stories and reconnect. Click on any of the blue buttons to re-connect with us. We are always interested in hearing from our alums and receiving feedback on the clinical experience, what it has meant to you, and how it can better serve future students. We’re also interested to learn about ways you would consider becoming more involved and we welcome your nominations for fellow alumni to feature in future newsletters!

We hope you enjoy catching up with us through this e-newsletter, and that it serves as the beginning of an ongoing and dynamic dialogue among us all for years to come.
