“Penn’s small class size offers great opportunities for leadership positions. I developed relationships with faculty members both as a class representative and while attending an international IP conference at Waseda University in Japan. Serving as a board member for Penn Law’s IP Group, I coordinated the symposium on fashion law, which included general counsels of several esteemed fashion houses, such as Ralph Lauren and Coach.”Name: Ivan Cao L’14, WG’14
