Even four decades after she graduated from Duquesne University School of Law, Carol Los Mansmann’s career in law and public service continues to inspire a legion of lawyers and judges touched by her example. Despite her untimely death of breast cancer in 2002, at the age of fifty-nine, Judge Mansmann’s legacy lives on, as evidenced by this special issue of the Duquesne Law Review dedicated to her myriad, impressive contributions. Many of those lawyers and jurists who knew Carol Mansmann best have contributed to this special issue. It speaks volumes that Justice Samuel Alito of the United States Supreme Court has volunteered to write the introduction to this rich, historical collection of articles. Within the pages of this issue, readers will find contributions from giants of the legal profession, whose careers were enriched by Judge Mansmann in extraordinary ways.
