The David Cooper Fellowship, sponsored by the University of Pennsylvania Law Review, helps passionate Penn Law graduates launch successful careers in all areas of public interest law. Since its establishment in 2012, the fellowship has supported alumni performing innovative and vital projects for public interest host organizations around the world. The fellowship was renamed after a member of the Law Review family, David Cooper L'15, passed away. David Cooper was a valued member of the Penn Law community, a bright and witty classmate, and a beloved friend. May this fellowship serve both as an opportunity to honor David and to support crucial public interest work.
