School Snippets: November 2018
New programs, student successes, and general updates from Dyson, Lubin, and the Elisabeth Haub School of Law.
Elisabeth Haub School of Law
The Elisabeth Haub School of Law has recently announced an new JD concentration in Women, Gender, and the Law. The concentration is the newest of five concentrations that the Law School offers in various fields of legal study and was created in response to a growing interest in the topic among Pace Law students. The concentration is available immediately to any qualifying Pace Law student.
“For four decades, Pace Law has prided itself on being on the cutting edge of legal education,” said Dean Horace Anderson, JD. “And since the establishment of the Women’s Justice Center in 1991, Pace Law has made gender justice a priority. The Women, Gender, and the Law concentration provides an opportunity for students to have gender justice inform their pursuit of careers in family law, trusts and estates, criminal justice, immigration, and a wide range of other areas of practice.”
The concentration is the latest in the school’s “Path to Practice” curricular approach, which provides students with rigorous classroom learning and experiential learning opportunities.
