Peter G. Glenn

Dean, Emeritus

Peter Glenn became the ninth dean of the then independent Dickinson School of Law in July 1994 and played a significant role in the 1997 affiliation and 2000 merger of Dickinson Law with Penn State University. Before assuming the deanship, Glenn was a partner in the international law firm now known as Jones Day and had been a member of the law faculties at the University of North Carolina, Washington & Lee University, and the University of South Carolina.

After eight years as dean of our law school, Glenn became an Executive Deputy General Counsel in the Pennsylvania Governor’s Office of General Counsel, with responsibility for oversight of much of the litigation involving the executive departments of the Commonwealth. In 2006, he was appointed General Counsel of Stevens & Lee, a multistate business law firm, a position he held until 2015. He was then invited to become an adjunct member of the Penn State Dickinson faculty, a position he held until his retirement at the end of 2020, teaching Professional Responsibility, Transactional Writing and Drafting, Law Practice Management.
