This fall, nine “brave souls,” undeterred by a 7:30 a.m. class start time, will be the first students in the new University of Pennsylvania Law School’s appellate advocacy clinic.

The clinic joins a growing community of law school Supreme Court and appellate litigation clinics. But there’s a difference, said clinic co-director Ilana Eisenstein, partner and co-chair of DLA Piper’s appellate advocacy practice.

“I hope we will have some cases referred to us, that we take on, but the core of the work we hope we will do is adopting issues of importance that may be percolating not just in one case but in many cases in many jurisdictions,” Eisenstein (at left) said. “We want to teach the students how do you create an advocacy strategy around key issues.”
