Prepare for

Great lawyers are first great students. And at Penn State's Dickinson Law, you'll learn in a supportive—yet highly challenging—environment, as you develop the skills necessary to practice law in an ever-changing world.

Our carefully planned curriculum pairs a strong foundational understanding of national and transnational law with invaluable practice experience. We deliberately teach problem-solving skills and other core competencies in your first-year. You'll then plan your upper-level curriculum around the concept of "The Lawyer as..." to acquire specialized substantive knowledge and other practical skills.
