ABA Required Disclosures
From 2006 to 2014, Penn State’s Dickinson School of Law operated as a unified law school on two campuses. In June 2014, the ABA approved Penn State’s proposal to operate its two campuses as two separate and fully approved law schools: Penn State Law in University Park, Pa., and Dickinson Law in Carlisle, Pa. In fall 2015, the two schools admitted separate first-year classes and will do so going forward. During the transition from a unified, two-campus school to two separate law schools, each school will provide separate disclosures as appropriate to comply with Standard 509 through the transition.
