Board of Overseers

Trickett Hall

Dickinson Law’s Board of Overseers is an advisory body comprised of a diverse group of prominent alumni leaders tasked with advising the dean and Dickinson Law administration on programmatic and strategic matters, as well as assisting with fundraising efforts that are integral to the ongoing success of Dickinson Law. As ambassadors of the Law School, the Board of Overseers is instrumental in providing advisory counsel to the dean designed to support and advance Dickinson Law’s mission of Practice Greatness. Typically, members serve an initial term of three years with the option to renew for a second three-year term.
