Dean's Welcome Message

Pace Weather Alert!

Due to the impending storm Pace Law School will close at 3:00 p.m.  on Monday, January 26th and re-open on Wednesday, January 28th. (classes in session at 3:00 p.m. will end at 3:00 p.m.)   The shuttle bus will run on Monday, January 26th following the 3:00 closure until 4:00 p.m. The cafeteria will be open on Monday until 5:00 p.m.  for resident students and on Tuesday for limited service – (we are hoping 10:00 a.m. -2:00 p.m. )  If you are a resident student, please move your car to the garage area so the parking areas can be cleaned. The storm promises to leave a large amount of snow and the plows will likely bury your car.

Additionally, the law library will be closed as the campus is closed. 

Please be safe as  you travel and hopefully we  will see you for reopening on Wednesday. Please continue to check the website for updates and your e-alert.

Finally,  the alumni reception scheduled for Tuesday, January 27th in NYC has been rescheduled.

If you have not signed up for University e-alerts, please do so.
