Duquesne Law Professor Honored by Allegheny YMCA, North Side

Bruce Ledewitz, professor of law at the Duquesne University School of Law, was recently honored by the YMCA of Greater Pittsburgh as its Volunteer of the Year at the Allegheny YMCA on the North Side during a special recognition event.

Ledewitz was recognized for his efforts to help develop and expand a Lecture and Conversation Series for the YMCA's North Side branch, which has drawn authors, environmentalists, scientists, reporters and others as speakers. When the series was first established three years ago, the Pittsburgh Steelers stepped forward to become the lead sponsor and remain so today. 

A resident of the North Side, Ledewitz has been an active member of the Allegheny YMCA since moving to the neighborhood several years ago. 

At Duquesne, Ledewitz is an expert in constitutional law and is a highly sought after speaker on the topic. His work has appeared in the Chicago-Kent Law Review, the American Criminal Law Review and the Post-Gazette. Ledewitz is the author of various books, including Church, State and the Crisis in American Secularism.
