Open to all Penn Law alumni living or working in Europe and looking to meet new friends and re-connect with old classmates and other alumni in the region.
Our Penn Law European Society (PLES) works toward building and maintaining a community of dedicated Penn Law alumni - JD and LLM alums alike - living and working in Europe. Over 20 years ago, a small number of Penn Law LLM alumni met in London for dinner; after a few years they extended their gathering to include all European alumni. They later decided to organize a special Penn Law alumni weekend once a year, each time in a different European city. And with that, the Penn Law European Society (PLES) and the annual PLES Meeting tradition was born. Please join us next year in Kiev, Ukraine - June 2015!
Registration for PLES 2020 is now open!!! Please visit our website for more information and to register now!!!

EARLY BIRD REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN FOR PLES 2016 IN BRUSSELS!!!
Dear all, In light of the horrible events that took place in Brussels a few weeks ago, we decided to postpone the registration for this year's PLES Conference for a brief time. But, if these attacks have shown us anything, it's that the need for international and cross-cultural understanding has never been greater.
The PLES Conference endeavours to continue the spirit of the Penn Law LLM program, by promoting and facilitating interpersonal connections across borders. To that end, we are happy to say that Early Bird Registration for this year's conference is now open!
Follow the link below to register now and take advantage of the early bird discount: https://upenn.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_3IyMdqA6HFfJJ6l
