Duquesne School of Law Announces Spring CLE Schedule
The Duquesne University School of Law has announced the schedule for its Spring 2014 Dean John J. Sciullo Continuing Legal Education (CLE) Saturday Series.
The four-part series will kick off on Saturday, Feb. 22, with The Affordable Care Act: Early Outcomes and Legal Implications, presented by Valarie K. Blake, visiting assistant professor of health law at Duquesne. During a time of great change in the financing and delivery of healthcare for patients, providers, hospitals and insurers, this CLE program places the Affordable Care Act within a historic context of prior healthcare reforms and larger economic trends. The program also will illustrate the more significant provisions of the act and early data on the outcomes of its implementation.
The Spring Sciullo CLE Saturday Series will also feature the following programs:
- Narrative Skills and the Law, Saturday, March 8, presented by Marshall Goldberg, adjunct professor of law at Stanford Law School and at the University of Michigan School of Law.
- The Violence Against Women Act and its Impact on the U.S. Supreme Court and International Law: A Story of Vindication, Loss, and a New Human Rights Paradigm, Saturday, March 29, featuring keynote speaker Cheryl Hanna, professor of law at Vermont Law School.
- Advanced Legal Writing Student CLE Presentations, Saturday, April 26, presented by Duquesne law students enrolled in the Advanced Legal Writing course and instructed by Duquesne Adjunct Law Professors April Milburn-Knizner and Sherri Adelkoff.
All CLE sessions will be held from 9 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. in Room 203 of the law school, and each offers 3 hours substantive CLE credits. Individual sessions generally cost $90, but all four sessions are available for $300. A limited number of CLE scholarships are available, and a $25 discount is offered to Duquesne Law Alumni Association members.
