Legal Education at Penn State


With more than 645,000 living alumni, Penn State offers countless networking opportunities at home and abroad. The Dickinson School of Law has trained generations of distinguished graduates who have gone on to become leaders of the practicing bar, the judiciary, in government, and in business. These alumni include the first secretary of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security; five governors; U.S. senators and congressmen; more than 100 federal, state, and county judges; and many prominent lawyers and civic leaders.

Your relationship with Penn State’s law schools doesn’t end at graduation. Alumni are encouraged to remain connected to their alma mater by attending annual alumni events such as Alumni and Reunion Weekend, held each fall in Carlisle, and Blue-White Weekend, held each spring at University Park.
