Duquesne University School of Law began as a night school in 1911, and that history is still carried on today. The evening program runs alongside the day program, giving students a chance to work and got to school. Duquesne University is a Catholic institution dedicated to moral, ethical and spiritual values, with a focus on justice and service to others. It prides itself on small classes and professors who are accessible. 

 Duquesne University strategically honors the three rules of real estate: Location, location, location — the school’s easy proximity to downtown Pittsburgh makes it a cinch for students to become immersed in the legal hub of the city. It operates a clinic in a nearby neighborhood, helping the underserved in its community. It is also near a courthouse. 

The school has a history of producing judges and other public servants. It earns an A- for Criminal law, thanks to a concentration in criminal litigation. That is one of 13 concentrations at the private school. Duquesne reports one of the top employment rates in the region.
