Stories from The Docket

The Docket is the the law school's biannual newsletter featuring our alumni stories, accomplishments as well as other developments in the law school community.

Avenging Doubt

Trial Team

Abbie Heller, ’14, never doubted that she was destined to work as a criminal defense attorney until she became a 1L. The resolve she’d felt since elementary school, that she belonged in a courtroom, wilted when she encountered the reality of law school. Was she in the right place?

But her doubts had little time to sink in, because a trio of mentors would soon convince Heller that she was on the right path.

A member of the adjunct faculty who leads the Marshall-Brennan Constitutional Literacy Seminar, Katz Scanlon works with current students who teach Philadelphia teens about the relevance of the constitution in their lives and groom them for high-school moot court competitions.

Mentors and Mentees

Mr. In Between

Sekou Lewis earned his JD in 2012, but five years have not dimmed his memory of how it feels to be a law student surrounded by experienced and accomplished attorneys.

“It’s intimidating for young lawyers,” Lewis said. “It’s especially intimidating for students.”

In 2016, Lewis began supervising Kline School of Law students completing co-op placements at Schnader Harrison, the behemoth firm he joined in 2012, where he represents private and public companies, nonprofit organizations and municipalities in real estate and corporate matters and serves as vice chair of the firm’s Sports Law team.

Peer to Peer

Jack Stucker

Sometimes a cold call can lead to a meaningful connection.

Nearing the end of a two-year stint with AmeriCorps’ Public Allies program, Jack Stucker, ’13 was certain about his career interest—housing rights—but he still had reservations about investing in a legal education. So he phoned law school administrators in the region to ask how their programs might help him take his advocacy to the next level, and make a living.

That’s how he came to know Susan Brooks, associate dean of experiential learning. “Dean Brooks and I had a very good conversation, and she helped persuade me that going to law school would be a good idea,” he said.
