Noah Schoenholtz L’21

After graduating from Williams College in 2012, Noah moved to Memphis, Tennessee, where he taught seventh grade social studies and pre-algebra with Teach For America. Noah’s experience with his students forms the lens through which he sees American society, and ultimately led him to law school. Between leaving the classroom and beginning 1L, Noah earned a master’s degree in education and served as a Presidential Management Fellow with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and U.S. Department of Justice. As a PMF, Noah investigated alleged civil rights violations, particularly fair housing claims.

At Penn Law, Noah is the Intake Coordinator for the Criminal Record Expungement Project, an Equal Justice Foundation Auction Co-Chair, and an Associate Editor for the Journal of Law and Social Change. Noah thoroughly enjoyed his 1L summer interning in Community Legal Services of Philadelphia’s Homeownership and Consumer Rights Unit. During his 2L fall, Noah completed an externship at the Pennsylvania Institutional Law Project, where he was supervised by two talented Penn Law alumni practitioners.
