PITTSBURGH (AP) - A $7.5 million grant will help Duquesne Law School lead an effort to improve continuing education programs for Pennsylvania’s judges, district judges, senior judges and justices.

Duquesne announced Tuesday the donation from alumnus Tom Kline that will create a center for judicial education named for the Philadelphia lawyer.

The state Supreme Court in December imposed a requirement that judges annually complete at least three hours of training in ethics and nine hours on other aspects of their job.
