Duquesne Law Professor Honored by Allegheny YMCA, North Side
Bruce Ledewitz, professor of law at the Duquesne University School of Law, was recently honored by the YMCA of Greater Pittsburgh as its Volunteer of the Year at the Allegheny YMCA on the North Side during a special recognition event.
Ledewitz was recognized for his efforts to help develop and expand a Lecture and Conversation Series for the YMCA's North Side branch, which has drawn authors, environmentalists, scientists, reporters and others as speakers. When the series was first established three years ago, the Pittsburgh Steelers stepped forward to become the lead sponsor and remain so today.
A resident of the North Side, Ledewitz has been an active member of the Allegheny YMCA since moving to the neighborhood several years ago.
At Duquesne, Ledewitz is an expert in constitutional law and is a highly sought after speaker on the topic. His work has appeared in the Chicago-Kent Law Review, the American Criminal Law Review and the Post-Gazette. Ledewitz is the author of various books, including Church, State and the Crisis in American Secularism.
Founded in 1878, Duquesne is consistently ranked among the nation's top Catholic research universities for its award-winning faculty and tradition of academic excellence. The University is nationally ranked by U.S. News and World Report and the Princeton Review for its rich academic programs in nine schools of study for nearly 10,000 graduate and undergraduate students, and by the Washington Monthly for service and contributing to students' social mobility. Duquesne is a member of the U.S. President's Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll with Distinction for its contributions to Pittsburgh and communities around the globe. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Princeton Review's Guide to Green Colleges acknowledge Duquesne's commitment to sustainability.
