Parents Attending Law School (PALS)

PALS at Penn State Dickinson is a student-run support network for students who have children, are married, or are considering having children. Bringing a family to law school is vastly different from the traditional law student experience. Our members understand the unique challenges that law school families face and are dedicated to assisting those students and their families with the first year transition and maintaining the delicate family/school balance through the rest of law school. We provide a casual forum for parent support, sponsor family-friendly events, and help students to find resources they need and answer questions they have that are unique to students with families.
