Family Division judges thank clinical students

This spring, Judge Kathryn M. Hens-Greco offered law students a special thank you for their service to the Family Division of the Court of Common Pleas of Allegheny County.

The 13th annual law student appreciation reception was held on April 12, in the Family Division, to recognize students' work as well as the staff of the Self-Help Center, Pro-Se Motions, and Children's Court.

In announcing the reception, Hens-Greco noted that because of the work of law students from Duquesne and the University of Pittsburgh, the division was able to assist income-eligible

litigants on the same day they appeared or on the day of scheduled appointments with the court's Legal Advice Clinic.

The Duquesne students in attendance all participated in law school's Family Law Clinic. They were accompanied by Prof. Katherine Norton, who supervises the clinic, and Prof. Tracey McCants Lewis, who directs clinical legal education programs.
