School of Law

A Duquesne University legal education offers a special emphasis on justice and service. The School of Law lives this mission and addresses new challenges in legal education every day through the support of law alumni and friends. 

In the face of unprecedented challenges this year, we have been creative and nimble while remaining committed to excellence. We remain driven to innovate and have worked with resolve to create a stronger and more inclusive community where all students can flourish. Our Vision requires us to stretch and challenge ourselves to push harder and go further.

Please donate to The Vision Fund on 2.10.21

During the 2021 Duquesne Day of Giving, the School of Law is asking you to support our Vision Fund.  The Vision Fund encompasses three pillars that are essential to keeping Duquesne Law School on the forefront of legal education:  

  • Developing Collaborative Learning Opportunities
  • Teaching Principles of Leadership
  • Fostering Student Well-Being

Gifts of any amount will also help strengthen our existing programs, such as Bar Preparation, while providing the opportunity to grow and achieve even greater results.  It will also keep Duquesne Law true to our Spiritan mission and working-class roots by strengthening our Evening Division.  A gift on this day will also assist our students who are suffering as a result of the global pandemic through our COVID-19 Emergency Assistance Fund.
