Conference Location

The 2017 One Child, Many Hands: A Multidisciplinary Conference on Child Welfare will be held at the University of Pennsylvania Law School, located at 3501 Sansom Street in Philadelphia, PA. This historic complex houses one of the nation’s oldest law schools, founded in 1850. With both classic architecture and modern facilities, Penn Law is the ideal setting for this year’s conference. All conference-wide sessions, workshops, registration and networking luncheons will be held on-site.

The University of Pennsylvania campus is convenient to Center City, Philadelphia and all that the City of Brotherly Love has to offer.

The conference site is accessible to public transportation.
