Davie fields questions at law school event for alma mater Duquesne

Ken Davie of Kearny, a partner in the law firm Cifelli and Davie, Esqs., in Harrison, is shown with Duquesne Law School’s Dean of Admissions Maureen Stokan at the National Law School Admissions Council’s recent forum at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in New York City.

Over 200 law schools participated in the forum, attended by 2,000+ prospective law students who asked interesting and thought-provoking questions of various school representatives.

Davie, an alumnus of Duquesne Law, noted the school has a first-time bar exam pass rate of 96.7% and 92% of graduates have a job when they leave its hallowed halls.

In addition, all of their current first-year law students are on scholarship for at least 25% of their tuition and they may participate in 15 clinical and three study-abroad programs, as well as five dual- and joint-degree programs while studying at a first-class facility that is a seven-minute walk from all courthouses and numerous major law firms in Pittsburgh.

Davie is a 1973 graduate of Duquesne Law School where he was the Appellate Moot Court winner and elected to the honorary Order of the Barristers. He is a Centennial Fellow and the recipient of the school’s Meritorious Achievement Award.
