Allegheny County Bar Foundation to Welcome Pittsburgh's New Law School Deans at Membership Luncheon on October 19th

October 17, 2005 – Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Robert V. Racunas, President of the Allegheny County Bar Association, today announced that the association will welcome the city’s two new law school deans at a membership luncheon to be held at the William Penn Hotel on October 19th. Mary A. Crossley, Dean of the University of Pittsburgh School of Law and Donald J. Guter, Dean of Duquesne University School of Law, will each make comments at the event. The media is invited to attend.

According to Racunas, “While Dean Crossley and Dean Guter have already been on the job for a couple of months, we want to give them an official welcome from the members of the Allegheny County Bar Association. We have a long tradition of working closely with Duquesne University Law School and the University of Pittsburgh Law School, and we look forward to continuing these successful partnerships. It is no surprise that our reservations for this luncheon are rapidly coming in since many of our members are proud graduates of either of the two law schools.”

The luncheon will begin at noon in the 17th Floor Ballroom of the William Penn Hotel. Dean Crossley and Dean Guter will make their comments toward the end of lunch.

The Allegheny County Bar Association, headquartered in downtown Pittsburgh, is a professional organization with more than 6,700 member attorneys, judges, magisterial district judges, law students, legal administrators and paralegals.
