Rising 2Ls land impressive summer work

The School of Law and the University share a unique mission that focuses on justice and service to others, but what truly sets a Duquesne lawyer apart from the rest is their deep understanding of the difference between what the law allows us to do and what is the ethical course of action that best serves our system of justice.

The following rising 2Ls earned the opportunity to put these concepts into practice through intensive, hands-on summer work at a wide range of locations, under justices, judges, and other legal professionals.

From corporate jobs to community organizations and the courts, students are getting a front row view of the many ways a lawyer can impact society and earn a living.
