This contemplates a book or extended monograph reflecting intensive and creative research with respect to a specific topic, problem, or area of law. The work, both in content and form, must be of publishable quality and normally must have been submitted and accepted for publication either as an extensive article (or series of articles) in a law review or a book.
Scholarships No, Penn Law does not offer financial aid, scholarships, or paid positions at the law school for our SJD students. Tuition is kept low to make this degree affordable as possible.
