Ann L. Schiavone returned to Duquesne University School of Law in 2013 as an assistant professor of legal writing.  In addition to teaching Legal Research and Writing I and II to first-year law students, she created two new upper-level courses.  The first, Legislative Process & Drafting, incorporates community engaged learning opportunities to give students valuable real world experience while serving the community.  The second, Companion Animals and the Law, focuses on controversial issues related to companion animals that arise frequently in law practice. Schiavone’s scholarly interests also focus on laws related to companion animals, and she has published several articles on the efficacy and constitutionality of breed-specific canine ordinances.

Prior to joining Duquesne's faculty, she was a member of Akron University Law faculty and taught varied courses including Legal Analysis Research and Writing I and II, Legislative Drafting, and seminars in Sexual Orientation and the Law and Animal Law. She also chaired the Admissions Committee at Akron.

Schiavone received her J.D., magna cum laude, from Duquesne University School of Law, and her B.A., summa cum laude, from St. Vincent College. After earning her law degree, Schiavone was an associate litigation attorney at Kirkpatrick & Lockhart LLP (now K&L Gates) and Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney PC. While earning her law degree, she served as the legislative assistant in the Pennsylvania State Senate and House of Representatives.

Schiavone is a member of the Pennsylvania Bar. In addition, she is a member of the Angel Ridge Animal Rescue Board of Directors, and a former member of the St. Vincent College Law Society Board of Directors. She lives with her husband and four dogs in the northern suburbs of Pittsburgh, and in her free time, she is an avid equestrian and an amateur genealogist.
