Salzburg Global Seminar

The University of Pennsylvania Carey Law School engages with the Salzburg Global Seminar both by sending delegations of students to the Cutler Fellows program, as well as inviting distinguished alumni and faculty to represent the Law School at sessions throughout the year.

The Salzburg Global Seminar forms partnerships with leading institutions around the world with a mission to challenge present and future leaders to solve issues of global concern. This independent, non-governmental organization convenes imaginative thinkers from different cultures, organizes problem-focused initiatives, supports leadership development, and engages opinion-makers through active communication networks.
