Dickinson School of Law Ranked No. 10 in Best Law School Facilities
Penn State Dickinson School of Law was recently ranked No. 10 in the nation on PreLaw Magazine’s list of Best Law School Facilities. The list was compiled after reviewing more than 200 law schools throughout the country.
PreLaw Magazine examined numerous features at each school such as student feedback, Princeton Review reports, library information, amenities, and square footage per student. Dickinson is the largest school in the top 10 in terms of square footage.
The ranking comes approximately five years after the renovation of Trickett Hall and the opening of Katz Hall in Carlisle. Katz Hall was named in honor of the late Lewis Katz, who graduated first in his 1966 class at the Dickinson School of Law. He was the owner of the Philadelphia Inquirer and Philadelphia Daily News. Katz died in a private plane crash this summer.
Penn State and The Dickinson School of Law merged in 2000 and recently became a two-campus institution after the American Bar Association approved Penn State’s request to operate two independent schools at different campuses.
