Duquesne President Charles Dougherty has rejected the recommendation of a law school faculty panel and law school dean Donald Guter and denied the tenure application of clinical professor John T. Rago, who is Associate Dean for Administration, Director of the Cyril H. Wecht Institute of Forensic Science and Law, and teaches criminal law and legal writing and research to 1Ls, and economic and community development law to upper class students. According to press reports:
Mr. Rago, who received a vote of more than 2 to 1 in favor of tenure, has worked at the law school since the early days of the administration of then-President John Murray Jr., joining it in 1993 as an associate dean. He was appointed to the faculty in 2001.
