Prof. Sizemore-Thompson advises foundation study on juvenile justice

Monday, February 13, 2017

Prof. Tiffany Sizemore-Thompson served as an advisor on a ground-breaking study by The Pittsburgh Foundation on juvenile justice. Youths participated in the research, the significance of which is "hard to overstate," says the assistant clinical professor.

"Having their voices be central to the work is one of the reasons that drew me to the pilot."

Sizemore-Thompson directs two Duquesne Law clinical programs, the Juvenile Justice Clinic and Education Law Clinic. Among her years of legal experience, Sizemore-Thompson served as a trial attorney for eight years at the Public Defender Service for the District of Columbia, handling juvenile cases and others. She came to Duquesne Law after serving as the deputy director for the Juvenile Division at the Office of the Public Defender in Allegheny County.
