The University of Pennsylvania Law School offers a Certificate in Law to students enrolled in a graduate or professional degree program at Penn.

Students need a total of four courses towards the certificate; three of them may be completed within the sixteen credits required for the MSW:

  • LAW 511 (Fulfills an MSW Elective)
  • LAW xxx (Fulfills an MSW Elective)
  • SWRK 7xx: TBA with approval by Law School (Fulfills one Law certificate course)

The fourth course needed for the certificate is taken at the Law School and is in addition to the 16 credits required for the MSW degree. Students pay the SP2 per-course tuition rate and must take the course before graduating from the MSW program.

Visit the Law School webpage for complete details about the Certificate in Law.
