About Dickinson Law

Danielle M. Conway, Dean and Donald J. Farage Professor of Law, Dickinson Law

Located in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, Dickinson Law offers J.D., LL.M., M.L.S., and S.J.D. programs of legal education. Established in 1834 as the first law school in Pennsylvania and as one of the oldest law schools in the country, Dickinson Law has a rich legacy in experiential learning complemented by a rigorous academic program in an intimate yet challenging environment.

Dickinson Law's core values—intellectual discovery and knowledge sharing, excellence in teaching and learning, and an unyielding commitment to building and sustaining community—define who we are as lawyers and leaders.

The Law School's commitment to its Practice Greatness mission ensures that students graduate profession ready as newly minted lawyers proficient in theory as well as doctrine, capable of communicating with and learning from other disciplines, and vested with the full range of practical lawyering skills and extra-legal competencies necessary to most effectively perform as legal professionals at the local, state, national, transnational, and international levels. From leading practitioners to accomplished researchers and scholars, our faculty are some of the best legal minds in the country, and continue to engage nationally and around the world with the legal profession through pro bono litigation, scholarship and more.

We are extremely proud of the accomplished and diverse group of scholars who chose Dickinson Law to practice greatness. Explore the profile of our most recently admitted class to learn more about our first-year law students.
