A Distinct Approach

Cross-disciplinary innovation in action.

At the University of Pennsylvania Carey Law School, we believe that the next generation of lawyers will be those who are not just superbly trained in law, but also have training in related fields — such as business, communications, health, technology, international studies, social work, and education — that complement and enhance their legal expertise.



Our faculty are leaders in law and other cutting-edge disciplines, and our integrative curriculum reflects our commitment to the pursuit of cross-disciplinary learning.

In addition, our position as an essential part of the University of Pennsylvania, one of the world’s leading premier research universities, allows our students to enrich their cross-disciplinary legal education by enrolling in graduate level courses at one of our sister schools or pursuing a joint degree or certificate of study.

The Law School’s academic programs are fully integrated with the professional and graduate schools on campus, providing students with an unparalleled opportunity to prepare for careers that engage virtually every major issue facing our society.
