Duquesne Law Alumni Association
Did you know that Duquesne Law has over 8,500 graduates practicing in every field of law? Being a part of our extensive network is a key benefit of attending law school at Duquesne. The Duquesne Law Alumni Association takes the lead in helping you make the most of this network. Membership for 2020 and 2021 grads is free – compliments of fellow alumni – and other members receive multiple benefits for $50 or less per year.
The DLAA understands that the COVID-19 pandemic has inflicted financial hardship and uncertainty on individuals during this time, and in recognition of transitioning to "normal", the DLAA has decided to cut dues in half for the 2021-2022 membership year. However, we greatly appreciate you making the full membership fee payment if you have the means to do so.
Not a member? Membership in the DLAA is vitally important, as your dues enable us to continue to support our fellow alumni and current students. Read President Maggie Lewis McHugh's important letter and learn how your dues will directly impact our Duquesne legal community.
