I'm happy to report that Penn State's Dickinson School of Law has received formal approval from the ABA to operate two independent and fully accredited law schools: Penn State Law at University Park and Dickinson Law in Carlisle, PA. From the press release:
"Degrees and diplomas from the two law schools will be in the name of The Dickinson School of Law of The Pennsylvania State University but will clearly reflect their independent and separately accredited status. Both campuses will refer to their affiliation with Penn State, but in general the Carlisle campus will be known as Dickinson Law and the University Park campus will be known as Penn State Law."
One take on the future of the two institutions in the wake of the split is here.
Kudos to interim dean Jim Hauck and his team for shepherding this through.
