The Certificate of Study in Law gives Penn graduate students an opportunity to become immersed in important legal topics in the areas of their academic interest.

MSSP students can obtain the Certificate of Study in Law within the one-year time frame by using their three elective courses towards the completion of the Certificate, as well as MSSP 631: Law and Social Policy, which is approved by Penn’s Law School. For more information, students should contact the Associate Director of the MSSP Program and visit the Certificate in Law’s webpage to learn about the requirements and the registration process.
