School of Law Establishes New Clinic Program
The Duquesne University School of Law clinic, under the leadership of Acting Director Tracey McCants Lewis, has established a new program by which our students are representing inmates in prisoners' civil rights cases in federal court, with the assistance of our Federal Magistrate Judges in Western Pennsylvania. Guided by supervising attorney Adrian Roe, our students have been approved to brief and argue a prisoner's civil rights case in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit - a remarkable opportunity given to only two law schools in Pennsylvania.
