Trial Skills Diversity Scholarship for Duquesne University School of Law Upper Class Student Announced

Dickie, McCamey & Chilcote, P.C., a national, full-service law firm is collaborating with the Duquesne University School of Law to award an annual scholarship and clerkship to an upper class student.

The Dickie McCamey Trial Skills Diversity Scholarship will benefit diverse Law School students who demonstrate an interest in the trial moot court program. Duquesne University School of Law offers a nationally recognized trial advocacy program that seeks to prepare students to be courtroom-ready advocates. Through comprehensive coursework and competition experience, the program develops students' skills in case analysis, trial preparation, effective communication, witness preparation, and case presentation.

Each year, the students participate in regional and national competitions across the country. With more than 15 years of program excellence, the list of trial advocacy wins is extensive.  Read more about recent victories here.

“One act like this will make a difference not only in the life of a person, the student, but the life of the lawyers in this room and this community. It’s just amazing,” said The Hon. Maureen Lally-Green, Dean of Duquesne University School of Law.

“Duquesne and Dickie McCamey share a tradition of excellence in trial advocacy as well as a commitment to diversity.  It was only natural that our firm and Duquesne to work together to create this opportunity,” said Jeffrey T. Wiley, Managing Director and Chief Operating Officer of Dickie McCamey.

Each year, one diverse upper-class student will receive a one-time award, a paid summer clerkship, and access to a designated mentor from Dickie McCamey for the duration of the student’s career at Duquesne University. 

Dickie McCamey will sustain this pledge for a minimum of five years.
