Largest Gift in History of Duquesne Law School Will Transform Judicial Education Statewide

PITTSBURGH, July 25, 2017 | Source : PR Newswire
In announcing the gift, Gormley stated, "The creation of the Thomas R. Kline Center for Judicial Education, in partnership with the Pennsylvania courts, and in collaboration with other law schools, is the first of its kind in the nation. We expect it to become a national model for judicial education in a new era." Gormley added, "We will draw on expertise not only from legal scholars, but also from experts in science, psychology, health sciences, ethics, and other areas necessary for sophisticated judicial decision-making, utilizing talent from universities across Pennsylvania. We are deeply appreciative to our alumnus Tom Kline, who has been committed throughout his career to the highest possible level of legal education in our commonwealth, and has stepped up to support his alma mater with this history-making gift to create the Center.  We are also appreciative that Chief Justice Thomas Saylor, the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania, and the Administrative Office of the Pennsylvania Courts, have collaborated with Duquesne University to create this historic partnership to further advance the system of justice in our commonwealth.  It is a truly exciting moment for Duquesne Law School.  We are honored to lead this important initiative."

The Kline Center will also work with the deans and legal scholars at all nine law schools in Pennsylvania (including Duquesne's School of Law) to create a statewide network designed to provide an innovative, high-level judicial education to more than 600 Pennsylvania jurists across the state.

"Our goal is to assure that judicial officers in Pennsylvania have the requisite skills and knowledge to fulfill their judicial responsibilities with integrity, adherence to the rule of law, and the highest standards of ethical behavior," said Chief Justice of Pennsylvania Thomas G. Saylor. "The Supreme Court's ongoing continuing judicial education efforts are paramount to achieving this goal.  We are grateful to Duquesne University for partnering with us, and indeed, to all the law schools for their anticipated involvement in this most important undertaking."

The Thomas R. Kline Center for Judicial Education will be housed at Duquesne University School of Law. It is expected that the Center will begin searching for an executive director immediately, with a goal of working with the Judicial Education Department of the Administrative Office of Pennsylvania Courts to begin delivering courses in 2018.

"We are thrilled that Duquesne University School of Law has been given this extraordinary opportunity to facilitate public service of the judicial branch in our commonwealth at the very highest level," said Dean Maureen Lally-Green, who previously served as a judge on the Superior Court of Pennsylvania for eleven years.  "The Kline Center will provide an invaluable learning opportunity for our faculty and students as they assist in the great work of the Center.  We express our deep thanks to our distinguished alum Tom Kline, and to the Pennsylvania Courts, for proposing this important position of trust in Duquesne's Law School."
