Penn State Merges With Dickinson Law


Pennsylvania State University in State College, wanting to add a law program without adding to the number of new lawyers, solved the problem: its board voted to merge with an existing institution, the Dickinson School of Law in Carlisle, about 100 miles away./The merger gives Penn State a way to educate those students in-house, and it gives Dickinson Law access to Penn State's formidable fund-raising operation and electronic information system. Beginning in July, Dickinson's 520 law students will receive Penn State degrees, and Dickinson employees will be placed on the university payroll.
