Law Lion Ambassadors

As the face of Penn State's Dickinson Law, our Law Lion Ambassadors are student leaders who promote the betterment of the school through student involvement in various recruitment and development activities. All of our Law Lion Ambassadors serve as role models within the Law School community and beyond. With their diverse interests and backgrounds, they are well equipped to answer your questions about law school in general and Dickinson Law in particular. Feel free to explore their profiles and connect with them directly. Remember, our ambassadors are full-time law students who keep busy with classes, studying, and serving our law school. If for some reason you don’t receive a response to your question within 48 hours, feel free to contact our admissions team.
