Penn State’s Dickinson Law

Laurel Terry’s Official Law School Webpage

 

NOTE:  I am based at Penn State’s Dickinson Law, which is the older of Penn State’s two ABA-accredited law schools.  It is located in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, 20 minutes from Pennsylvania’s state capital of Harrisburg; two hours north of our nation’s capital of Washington, D.C.; and within a one hour or less commute of a federal district court and seven different state [county] courthouses.  At Penn State’s Dickinson Law, our Core Principles include teaching, scholarship, service, and community.  All of our faculty members have practiced law and we aspire to vest in our students the entire range of concrete lawyering skills necessary to most effectively perform as legal professionals at the local, state, national, transnational, and international levels in the twenty-first century.  We are also engaged in a quest for knowledge and wisdom that we can share not only with our students but also with legal professionals, scholars, policy makers, and others, consistent with Penn State's role as a world-class research university. Since January 2008, Dickinson Law faculty members have published or have forthcoming approximately 50 books, 90 book chapters and 135 articles. During this time period, eighty percent of the current tenured faculty members have been an author or co-author of a book; eighty percent have written book chapters; and 100 percent have written articles. There have been more than 11,000 downloads on SSRN of our scholarship. Fifty percent of our tenured faculty members have received a Fulbright grant; virtually all have taught or worked overseas.
