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.


During the 2018 Duquesne Day of Giving, the School of Law is asking for your help in four key areas:


  • Clinical Legal Education, the instructional cornerstone that provides students with real-world practical skills and directly serves community needs.
  • Scholarships for highly qualified law students, including those from diverse backgrounds, during difficult economic times.
  • Expanded bar studies, including personalized training and support, to give every student the chance to excel on the bar exam.
  • Upgraded facilities to create an enhanced learning environment.
