Some interesting facts about Penn State Law School - Dickinson

Penn State’s Dickinson Law is committed to producing profession-ready lawyers equipped with the doctrinal knowledge, practical skills, and extralegal competencies necessary to excel in an increasingly global legal market. The hallmarks of a Dickinson Law education are an innovative curriculum that, from the very first day of law school, relies heavily on experiential learning to prepare our students to practice law, and a welcoming and supportive community.

Founded in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, in 1834, Dickinson Law is the oldest law school in Pennsylvania and the fifth oldest in the country. For nearly 185 years, Dickinson Law graduates have included the nation’s most distinguished attorneys, judges, government and corporate leaders, and legal educators. Our 1997 merger with Penn State expanded our reputation, network, and joint-degree programs—complementing Dickinson Law’s legacy as an innovative leader in experiential education.

Throughout its rich 40-year history of offering the LLM Program, Dickinson Law has welcomed students from around the world who have come to advance their careers by studying with our distinguished faculty. At Dickinson Law, we integrate our LLM students into the life of the law school. Our LLM cohort is kept intentionally small to foster greater interaction with faculty and JD students, as well as to cultivate relationships with alumni, judges, and lawyers in the nearby metropolitan legal markets of Harrisburg, Philadelphia, Baltimore, New York, and Washington, DC.
