Summer Programs & International Careers

Our JDs and LLMs enjoy international opportunities in Asia, Australia, Europe, Africa and Latin America, as well is the U.S.

The University of Pennsylvania Carey Law School’s International Affairs Office works together with OCS to advise students who wish to work abroad either during their summers or after law school and to administer the Global Justice Fellowship (GJF) and the Global Legal Practice Fellowship (GLPF), two outstanding avenues for students seeking valuable career insight and experience during law school.

Office of Career Strategy

Office of Career Strategy (OCS) provides substantial and sustained support in the form of programming, resources and individual counseling to students and alumni interested in international opportunities.

This includes a dedicated Career Counselor who specializes in international opportunities and meets regularly with students, beginning in their 1L year, to help each student develop his or her individual international interests and create a job search strategy. OCS supports students pursuing international careers with U.S. and foreign firms as well as with government, multilateral organizations and non-governmental organizations. Each year, Law School graduates join law firms and legal organizations around the world expanding the robust community of international attorneys.
