Dean and Donald J. Farage Professor of Law

Penn State Dickinson Law

Conway has led Dickinson Law for two years. Before that, she was dean of the University of Maine School of Law. 

As Dickinson Law’s dean, “I establish the leadership vision for all administrative offices … and for the faculty, pursuant to a shared governance model,” she said. “I also serve as the liaison between the law school and all internal and external constituents.” 

Conway added, “I am proud of the systemic equity work Dickinson Law has leaned into these past two years.” For example, the institution doubled its students of color population from 22% to 44% in 2020; raised its faculty of color from 12% in 2017 to 30% in 2021; and is the first U.S law school to require a year-long course titled, “Race and Equal Protection of the Laws.” 

Outside of work, “I love to spend time with my son playing Legos, practicing violin and piano duets, and learning how to swim. [He] is just so much fun to be around,” Conway said. She enjoys doubles tennis as well and hopes one day her son will want to be her tennis partner.
