By: Chalon C. Young

Chalon C. Young has been appointed Professor of Practice at the University of Pittsburgh School of Law. This distinguished appointment requires a nomination and unanimous faculty vote.

Professors of Practice are accomplished practitioners with extensive experience in a particular field of law, more than would be typical for most adjunct faculty. The purpose of the position is to enable the Law School to take advantage of the substantial practical experience of a highly successful practitioner, at a greater level than would be afforded by an adjunct affiliation. Chalon has served as an adjunct professor at the University of Pittsburgh School of Law for the past three years.

Chalon has 20 years of experience in both civil and criminal litigation and has represented clients in criminal defense cases at the State and Federal level. She has represented hundreds of clients in a wide range of criminal jury trials, with most of her representation in homicide, major crimes, complex cases and violent felonies. Her experience includes jury trials for homicide, sex offenses, drug trafficking, human trafficking, kidnapping, firearms offenses, and home invasion robberies, among other offenses.
