PHILADELPHIA –- The legal-education book, “Criminal Law Conversations,” is now available after an innovative year-long cyberspace debate among the world’s leading criminal-law scholars about modern criminal law.
Through an interactive online approach to legal scholarship, hosted on the University of Pennsylvania Web site, authors of top-rated essays defended their ideas against criticism from other law professors. The essays they found most compelling were selected for inclusion in the book.
PHILADELPHIA -- University of Pennsylvania Law School students will get more opportunities to advocate for human rights and asylum protection with the creation of a new clinical program. The Sheehan Asylum/Human Rights Project is the result of a $1 million gift from the New York City firm Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom in honor of 1969 Penn Law alum Robert Sheehan.
