Dean Barton Quoted in

Dean April Barton was quoted in an article in LAW.COM entitled, "Changes in the Law Practice After COVID-19...What Will be the New Normal?"

The author wrote about some law practice changes that will be temporary, and others that may be long lasting. He interviewed legal professionals state-wide about the changing practices, including judges, civil and criminal practitioners.

About what the "new normal" may look like at Duquesne University School of Law, Dean Barton said that she cannot count on operating as normal on campus next semester. She commented, "It will be either having a safe social distancing arrangement with professors and students or conducting classes completely online. We owe it to the students to offer the best as possible." She further added that a major academic emphasis in the coming year will include instruction on individual leadership, a discipline not usually included in a law school curriculum.
