ABA Employment summary report
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, and Dickinson Law in Carlisle. Beginning with the Class of 2015, separate employment data will be reported for graduates. 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.
