Duquesne Law Professor: Young Lawyers Want To Serve Community

PITTSBURGH (NewsRadio 1020) — Duquesne Law School professor Joe Mistick has seen a shift in the motivations behind young lawyers.

As a professor, Mistick has experience practicing law, as well as insight into teaching the next generation of lawyers.  He says justice is still available as long clients can find the right lawyer.

Mistick also thinks there’s been a shift in reasons why students choose to become attorneys, saying the motivation has shifted from the potential for big bucks to working for justice.

He explains saying, “young lawyers have a fire in them” and students “go to law school to serve their community.”

Duquesne Law School is one the leading schools in the nation. It also played host to Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas last week.
