The Pennsylvania State University - Dickinson Law

Penn State’s Dickinson Law, one of Penn State’s two separately accredited law schools located in Carlisle, PA, is committed to producing profession-ready lawyers equipped with the doctrinal knowledge, practice 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 supporting community. Founded in 1834, Dickinson Law is the oldest law school in PA 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.
