Recent graduates and those farther removed from Penn Law now have many opportunities to connect due to the flourishing of alumni clubs over the last several years.
The first clubs, in New York and South Florida, were established in 2007. Soon after, the clubs went international, with first one forming in Japan. Today there are 27 clubs – 16 in the U.S. and 11 in the rest of the world. View the entire list.
The clubs are a hub for networking, social events, and educational programs. Back in May, professor David Abrams spoke to Boston alumni about the role of attorneys in the outcome of cases and pondered whether judges vary in their treatment of race. Development and Alumni Relations also sponsored a number of happy hours over the summer in Philadelphia, New York, Boston, Washington, D.C, Chicago, Miami and San Francisco.
If you’re interested in getting more involved with the alumni club in your area, please contact Rachel McQuaid L’11, associate director of Alumni Relations, at rmcquaid@law.upenn.edu.

All work and no play for Penn’s JD/MBAs this summer? No way! When they weren’t in class, our rising 2Ls were down the shore, in the Poconos, playing softball, having cocktails, and BBQ’ing.  Now in their 2nd week of Wharton Pre-Term, they are ready to start the next phase of their studies here alongside their fellow MBA classmates…

Adrian Cronauer L’89, inspiration for the film “Good Morning, Vietnam,” remembers Robin Williams.

From The Roanoke Times:

Gooooooooood morning, Vietnam!

Adrian Cronauer perfected those three words on the air while hosting a radio program called “Dawn Buster” in Saigon from 1965 to 1966. Comedic actor Robin Williams, who died Monday, made those words famous when he portrayed Cronauer in the 1987 critically acclaimed film “Good Morning, Vietnam.”

Meet Interim Dean Wendell Pritchett:

I’m very excited, because I’ve been connected to Penn almost my entire life. When I was a kid several of my friends’ dads taught at Penn, I spent a lot of time on campus as a kid - I even took my SATs at Penn. A lot of my friends attended undergrad here, friends also attended the Law School, and I did my graduate work here. In addition, I taught at Penn Law for nearly a decade and, of course, my wife Anne Kringel directed the legal research and writing program here for 20 years.
