Penn State Law previously operated as the University Park campus of the two-campus Penn State Dickinson School of Law. Although the Penn State Law faculty, curriculum, and programs based in University Park have been offered as part of the two-campus law school since 2006, Penn State Law did not begin to operate as a separate school until fall 2015. Therefore, some of the above data about Penn State Law graduate employment is from the unified operation.
