Antonino has aspirations of becoming a Philadelphia litigator with current interests in antitrust, constitutional law, and white collar investigations. This past summer, Antonino was a judicial intern for the Honorable Chief Judge Juan R. Sánchez in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania where he researched and drafted emails, memos, and briefs on issues pertinent to ongoing litigation before the Court. This writing experience alongside observing Third Circuit Arguments and various District Court proceedings has also sparked his interest in clerking after graduating from Penn Law. He is currently on the board of Penn Law for Philly (a club dedicated to help Penn Law students find careers in Philadelphia) and is a singer in the Penn Law Acappellants.
In addition, Antonino has developed a passion for mentorship. He was a participant and mentor in Penn's College Achievement Program (PennCAP), Pre-Freshman Program, Summer Mentorship Program, and Graduate School Mentoring Initiative. He also has recently spoken on two panels: (1) a Faculty Conference at Penn for TRIO program alums who are currently college and university faculty hosted by the Council on Opportunity in Education where he discussed mentorship and faculty engagement; and (2) a talk with high school students for Penn's Rising Scholar Success Academy (RSSA) where he discussed and answered questions about mentorship and the college/law school application process to 90 current Philadelphia high school students.
When he's not studying or networking, Antonino enjoys playing board games with his friends, watching anime, and catching up on the Marvel cinematic universe. He is a returning GRA for Stouffer College House and is looking forward to meeting everyone!!!
