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 ten credits required for the NPL degree:

  • LAW 511 (fulfills an outside Elective)
  • LAW xxx (fulfills an outside Elective)
  • NPLD xxx: TBD 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 10 credits required for the NPL degree. Students pay the SP2 per-course tuition rate and must take the course before graduating from the NPL program.

For more information, students should contact the Administrative Director of the NPL Program and visit the Certificate in Law’s webpage to learn about the requirements and the registration process.
