Donation helps Duquesne Law provide training for judges
Jul. 25, 2017
PITTSBURGH (AP) — A $7.5 million grant will help Duquesne Law School lead an effort to improve continuing education programs for Pennsylvania's judges, district judges, senior judges and justices.
Duquesne announced Tuesday the donation from alumnus Tom Kline that will create a center for judicial education named for the Philadelphia lawyer.
The state Supreme Court in December imposed a requirement that judges annually complete at least three hours of training in ethics and nine hours on other aspects of their job.
Duquesne will work with other law schools in the state to provide the training. The first classes are expected to be offered next year.
