A Pittsburgh lawyer who clerked for multiple judges, including three members of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, has been named the temporary head of the state's newest training center for judges.
Joy G. McNally has been announced as the interim director of the Thomas R. Kline Center for Judicial Education at the Duquesne University School of Law.
The Kline Center was made possible by a $7.5 million donation by the namesake litigator and the collaboration of nine law schools. Its mission is to provide free continuing legal education to the state's judges in advance of a new education requirement for sitting jurists. It's a first-of-its-kind CLE partnership across law schools that are typically competitors.
The Administrative Office of the Pennsylvania Courts is also involved in planning the CLE curriculum for the more than 600 judges in the state.
